Jewish couple attacked in NYC

A Jewish married couple were verbally and physically attacked in New York City by assailants — apparently Palestinian supporters — yelling anti-Jewish statements, the New York Post reports.

On Monday evening, a gang pulled up in two cars and several motorcycles and surrounded the couple on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the New York Post says. Several of the vehicles displayed Palestinian flags.

The wife was hit with a water bottle and her husband was punched in the side of his head, according to the newspaper, which cites law enforcement sources.

Police reportedly believe the couple was singled out because the husband was wearing a kippah.
