Five Arabs attacked a haredi man near the Jaffa Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem last night (Friday) before running off towards the New Gate.

The victim reportedly did not need medical attention.

Police reviewed security footage and located the perpetrators, still in the Old City. All five were quickly arrested and have been brought for questioning.

In addition, a group of Arabs threw stones at vehicles near Hevron shortly before Shabbat began. One of the cars, which was carrying a baby and several children at the time, was hit and its windshield smashed. Fortunately, there were no injuries to the people inside.

Other stone throwers were reported on the road between Kiryat Arba and Hevron, as well as around the community of Itamar. Others threw explosive devices at IDF forces in Abu Dis and Bil'in.

There were no injuries reported in any of the attacks.
