A Jewish teen was attacked in Chile by three men after they spotted he was wearing a shirt with the Israeli flag on it.
The men threw stones at hime, punched him and slashed his arms and legs 40 times with a knife. While attacking him they shouted anti-Semitic abuse and called him a “murderer”.
The attack took place last Friday in a park in Chile’s capital city Santiago.
According to reports the teen was forced to remain at the site until emergency crews arrived to administer first aid.
Chile’s Jewish community responded by saying, “We cannot allow more people in our country to become victims of hate. Nothing justifies this attack.”
There are approximately 18,000 Jews in Chile out of a population of 17,500,000.
