Rivlin condemns attack on Arab Israelis at Haifa beach

President Reuven Rivlin condemns the brutal beating of three Arab Israelis by two Jews in Haifa last week.

During a visit to the town of Kafr Kassem, Rivlin tells residents, “We are all destined — not doomed — to live here together in this country, not doomed to live like this,” he adds.

The victims — a doctor and two nurses — said the suspects asked them if they were Arab before they began attacking them.

The Haifa Magistrate’s Court on Saturday ordered that one of the suspects, a 23-year-old Jewish resident of Nesher, be placed under house arrest for the next three days.

Today, the second suspect was released to house arrest.
