An Arab taxicab driver suffered light injuries after he was allegedly assaulted by two Jewish youths that he drove to the Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo on Monday.

Police say that one of the youths held a knife to the driver's throat, after which the driver retaliated. A struggle ensued, and the driver suffered a small cut on his hand. At that point, the youths fled the cab.

The driver was treated for his injuries at Shaare Zedek Medical Center and immediately released. Police have launched an investigation and are treating the incident as a racially motivated crime.
