« Jerusalem-Ma’an- The young Palestinian, Montaser Issa, was seriously wounded, as a result of assault by a settler and his dog, while he was at the head of his job on an IJD passenger bus in Jerusalem.
The young man, Montaser Issa, explained what happened where he said: « On Wednesday, nine o’clock after leaving the first station during my traffic from the Pisgat Zeev settlement, and during my stop at the opposite station of the mall, two people came up with me, and I was surprised when they were on the bus with a dog with them, so I informed the young man that It is forbidden for the dog to enter the bus, « according to the laws and that I am being subjected to a violation. » So, by him, he insults and verbally speaking words towards me, but I did not respond to him. However, he approached me and stood at my seat and was near me a broomstick to clean, so he broke it and severely beat me. »
He explained that the train security men and the commercial complex, in addition to other settlers, were present, and he asked them for help, but they met with laughter.
He showed that the effects of the attack on his body from the dog and his face from the settler were visible on him, as his lip and tongue were sewn. »
