Arabic-speaking man tosses stone at Israeli’s head in Germany

A 27 -year-old Israeli woman was the victim of a violent antisemitic attack in Bavaria after an Arabic-speaking man tossed a stone at her after she spoke Hebrew.

She suffered a head injury, according to the Bavarian daily, Merkur, which reported that the police are searching for the suspect, who fled the scene of the alleged crime.

That attack took place near a cemetery in the town of Massing. The Israeli woman was walking with her two sons near the cemetery. After the woman called for one of her sons in Hebrew, the man screamed in Arabic “Jew” and tossed a stone at her head.

The Merkur reported that the suspect is between 40 and 50 years-old and has short, black hair. He spoke broken German with a foreign accent.
