Jewish worshippers were attacked by two individuals in Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday, Hebrew media reported.
This attack comes amongst many other small clashes that have taken place in the city on the same day, which consists of numerous Arab rioters throwing stones at Egged buses en route to the Western Wall and ongoing tensions between rioters and Israeli police at the Temple Mount.
The video shows three Jewish worshipers wearing prayer shawls passing through one of the alleys at the scene when rioters suddenly attacked them violently, threw large objects at them, punched and kicked them and then fled the scene.
