IMEMC & Agencies: Three Israeli settlers attacked Sunday an elderly Palestinian woman in Deir Yassin area, in West Jerusalem.

Medical sources said that Fathiyya Mohammad Ajaj, 75, was visiting her son, Abed, at a hospital in the area.

The woman left the hospital and was waiting for a car to take her home when three Israeli settlers beat, kicked and threw her onto the ground.

The settlers also shouted vulgar words at her, in addition to shouting “death to Arabs”, before tearing part of her dress off before she lost consciousness.

Later on, an Egged Israeli bus driver and two young men took her to her home in Jabal Al-Mokabbir, in East Jerusalem.

The woman then was moved to a local clinic. She later filed a complaint at a local Israeli Police station.
