OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)– Jewish settlers ganged up on a Palestinian teacher in occupied Jerusalem’s Old City on Wednesday and beat her up, eyewitnesses reported.

They said that the settlers attacked and assaulted Nur Al-Husseini, who works as a teacher in a school for special needs.

The witnesses said that the settlers kicked the woman, who was only saved by a group of Palestinian passersby, adding that the settlers tried to ignite a bigger scuffle.

The incident follows heightened tension in occupied Jerusalem after the Israeli occupation authority announced plans to construct more settlement units in the holy city and escalated arrest campaigns in lines of its inhabitants. The settlers have also soared their provocations in the city’s Arab suburbs.
