JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- A group of Israeli settlers cornered and assaulted two young Palestinian men from the Beit Hanina neighborhood of Jerusalem on Friday night as they drove past the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Pisgat Zeev.

A family member told Ma'an that a group of settlers armed with clubs blocked their vehicle and attacked 18-year-old Yazan Hani Ramadan and 18-year-old Majd Zaki Ramadan as they were driving just before midnight.

The young men's uncle Amjad Ramadan told a Ma'an reporter that the two young men left the Wadi al-Jouz neighborhood near the old city of Jerusalem around 11 p.m. in order to return to their homes in Beit Hanina.

As they passed a mall near the Pisgat Zeev settlement in East Jerusalem, a vehicle obstructed their car and two other vehicles closed their way from behind.

Fifteen settlers then stepped out and started to beat the two young Palestinians.

"They attacked them while they were inside the car, then again while they were outside, causing bruises and fractures all over their bodies," he said.

"After they fainted, the settlers fled the scene and passersby called an ambulance which evacuated the victims to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital," he added.

All of this goes to show that an absence of Palestinian resistance only excites the Zionists to greater excesses of brutality. Start an intifada and this will stop.
