JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A 75-year-old Palestinian woman has filed a complaint with Israeli police after being assaulted by three Israelis as she waited for a bus in West Jerusalem on Sunday, her son told Ma'an.

Fathiyeh Ajaj was waiting for a bus in Deir Yassin, now known as Givat Shaul, after a hospital appointment when she was pushed to the floor by three Israelis, who the son described as settlers.

They tried to remove her hijab -- the Muslim headscarf-- and tore her clothes, the son said.

"My mother fainted and the bus driver saw her, rushing to rescue her," he told Ma'an.

Ajaj filed the complaint at the Jabal Mukabir police station, he added.

The report follows the filing of two separate assault charges against an Israeli man after he attacked two Palestinian women as they tried to buy a ticket for the Jerusalem Light Rail.

The UN has criticized Israel for a lack of adequate law enforcement against Israeli settler violence against Palestinians in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, which is on the rise.

In 2012, one Palestinian was killed and approximately 1,300 injured by Israeli settlers or security forces in incidents directly or indirectly related to settlements, including demonstrations, the UN says.

According to Israeli rights group Yesh Din, only ten percent of 781 investigations conducted by Israeli police into incidents of settler violence between 2005 and 2011 resulted in indictments.

This is the second story in as many days. Is it a new trend? Have the Zionists tired of running over toddlers?

Ah well. I suppose it makes Zionists feel more MANLY. So big and strong. No more dhimmi, no sir. It's the new Uber-Jew, the master race, the Lords of the Land...

If they were settlers, what were they doing in Givat Shaul? Sounds like someone hates Israelis/Jews, decides to call them "settlers" (like me calling Palestinians "terrorists"), and reporting this to the news. Come on! The abuse is inexcusable but get your facts straight -- otherwise you need quotations around the word "settlers" since you have not proven that they are actually settlers. Also, no one calls Givat Shaul "Deir Yassin" anymore, not even when my family lived there...

Are you kidding? This is a big bunch of lies intended to inflame ignorant people against the innocent. Shame on Ma'an for printing such rubbish. Take a look at the Pallywood videos for more of the same.

These incidents NEVER appear in our news media here. Why? And so appropriate that this happened in Deir Yassin. Wonder why the Israelis re-named it? Oh yes, the massacre in April 1948 - too embarassing. . . .

#6 Yes because Sarah living in the United States is a world renowned investigator known for successfully cracking cases of "pallywood" fraud. According to her, the Israelis have NEVER attacked a woman, Mohammad al Durra is still alive, there is no occupation, all Palestinians want to wipe Israelis off the face of the earth, and the IDF is the most moral army in the world. Give me a break, Sarah. Pull your head out of the toilet and do some research before you open your mouth.
