A Jewish man was attacked by two Arabs on the Jerusalem Promenade early Monday evening, according to Israel Police.

The victim, a man in his early 20s, was jumped as he was walking along the promenade in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in southern Jerusalem.      

Both of the young Arab men who attacked the Jew fled when police arrived at the scene.

The victim sustained mild injuries in the attack, and was able to make his way to the nearby Terem Emergency Medical Center for assistance.

A police investigation is underway.

Arabs attacking Jews and others in the capital have become increasingly brazen.

Firefighters in Jerusalem earlier this month fought at least five different fires, all of which officials said they believe were the result of the latest form of “arson terror” being perpetrated as part of the greater nationalist Arab terror movement.

In May, firefighters battled at least 13 blazes deliberately set by Arabs – including several incidents in which the firefighters were targeted in attacks by Arabs hurling rocks and bottles at them.

Security officials say that arson has now joined road terror in the new arsenal of Arab terrorist weaponry, particularly around the capital region.

In particular, Arabs have been targeting Armon Hanatziv in southern Jerusalem, and the IDF Ofarit Base in the Mount Scopus area, near Issawiya in northern Jerusalem.
