Jewish man given 5-year sentence for assaulting Arab during May Gaza war

The Tel Aviv District Court has sentenced Yaakov Attenau to five years in prison for brutally assaulting an Arab man in a racially motivated attack in Herzliya that took play during last May’s Gaza War.

Six other Jewish men were arrested in the attack targeting a man in his 60s from the town of Taibe. The Shin Bet in a statement after their arrests said the “masked men attacked the victim, spraying him with pepper spray and stabbing him with a sharp object.”
