Arabs throw rocks and other objects at Jewish families returning from synagogue.

Dozens of Arabs violently attacked Jewish families walking to synagogue on Saturday.

The violent attacks, both physical and verbal, occurred as the families were walking from Jerusalem's Beit Orot neighborhood to pray in Beit Hahoshen.

During the afternoon hours, approximately five families left Beit Orot to pray in the Beit Hahoshen area. On the way there, they were met by Arabs who shouted racist comments at them. On the way back, near the At-Tur Junction, dozens of Arabs surrounded them, violently attacking them.
