Tragedy struck Los Angeles on Monday when an elderly Jewish man succumbed to his injuries sustained at a pro-Palestinian protest over the weekend.
According to a report by The Yeshiva World, the victim was involved in an altercation that took place on Westlake Blvd in Ventura County during the demonstration on Sunday.
As reported, the Jewish man was walking near the protest, and an altercation broke out between the unnamed victim and a young protester when suddenly he was hit in the head by the pro-Palestinian protester.
The instrument of assault was allegedly a megaphone, the blow from which caused the man to fall onto the ground, suffering a severe head injury. Eyewitnesses recounted the horrifying scene of seeing the victim fall bleeding to the ground while a woman bearing a sign that read “free Palestine” rushed to provide assistance.
