Several Jews attacked an Arab man in Jerusalem’s popular Mahane Yehuda market on Sunday, as video emerged of a similar assault in the capital last month.

In footage from the market, several people dressed in black can be seen beating a man with their hands and clubs, before he is able to shake loose and flee.

According to police, the suspects then broke glasses in a restaurant where they searched for the man but failed to find him.

Officers were scouring the area for suspects, but there were no reports of arrests.

It was not clear what prompted the incident.

Meanwhile, Channel 13 news aired security footage from a supermarket in Ramat Shlomo last month in which a large group of Jews can be seen chasing after an Arab worker identified as Mahdi Jabarin and viciously beating him.

According to the report, the Jews — one of whom was as young as 12 — specifically sought out an Arab to assault. In the video, the store’s security can be seen confronting the attackers and trying to stop them, but to no avail.

“From that day he hasn’t returned to work. He doesn’t want to go back,” Jabarin’s father told the network, while blaming the assault on “racism.”

An indictment has been filed against one suspect so far over the assault and police told Channel 13 they were preparing to soon charge additional suspects.
