4 Women Survive Near Lynch on Mount of Olives

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

A woman and three teenage girls miraculously escaped an Arab lynch mob on Thursday afternoon in the Jerusalem A-Tur neighborhood on the Mount of Olives.

The driver of the car, a teacher, and the three teenage girls were returning from school to the Maaleh HaZeitim neighborhood at around 1:30pm, when they detoured through the A-Tur neighborhood due to congestion near Wadi Joz. The detour is a standard shortcut to avoid the Wadi Joz traffic.

Once inside the neighborhood, the driver noticed a crowd on the road. She had to stop and the car was then hit by a rock.

The rest of the Arabs then noticed them, and within seconds, the car was surround by Arabs, and the way behind them purposely blocked by another car.

The Arabs began pelting the car with large rocks from all directions. The car’s windows and the car were smashed.

The girls in the back seat covered themselves with their school knapsacks to prevent themselves from getting hit by the rocks and shattering glass.

One girl in the back seat was injured by a rock to the back.

Not yet panicking, the driver kept trying to call the police and the local security services to help them escape.

After being hit by rocks for a few minutes, the driver finally saw an opening and zoomed out of the neighborhood.

Once outside, they flagged down a police car, at which point the policeman called for an ambulance and transported two of the injured and scared girls to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital.

Police cars were then seen entering the A-Tur neighborhood.

Update: The girls have been released from the hospital.

On Wednesday, the Arfons family, visiting Israel from New York, were rescued from an Arab mob who tried to lynch them – in Jerusalem.

The family was on their way to visit the grave of their grandfather, located on the Mount of Olives. The Mount of Olives is the oldest Jewish cemetery in the world, going back an estimated 3000 years, and holds approximately 150,000 graves.

According to the father, Yoel, when they reached the area near Augusta Victoria, two Arab-owned cars suddenly blocked them, one in the front, and one from behind.

The Arabs in the the cars then got out and began stoning the car, smashing it, and attempting to physically pull the family out of the vehicle.

One of the passengers, a cousin (40), suffered a hand broken and internal injuries as he protected two children who were in the car, ages 14 and 17. The cousin was taken to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus for treatment. The rest of the family suffered injuries and bruises, but were treated on site.
