Abraham Rosenbaum, a United States citizen, 80 years old, was among the victims of new Arab attacks on Jewish worshippers at the Wailing Wall, which occurred late Wednesday afternoon.

On his way to the Jewish place of worship, Mr. Rosenbaum was overwhelmed by a group of Arabs, who beat him and pulled his hair.

Five other Jewish residents of Jerusalem were assaulted during the day. A Jewish young man was stabbed near Talpioth, Jerusalem suburb. A Jewish hospital nurse was among the victims in the Old City.
