Thursday, the Israeli Occupation police announced the arrest of seven Israeli Occupiers on charges of assaulting and stabbing a Palestinian citizen in his 60s near a mosque in the northern city of Herzliya.

The police said in a statement, "The police and the Shin Bet security service arrested seven residents of Herzliya, on suspicion of being involved in a nationalistic attack against a resident of the city of Taybeh near the Sidna Ali Mosque in Herzliya."

Police said the attack occurred May 12.

They added that they received a report that a person was injured in a car near the mosque in Herzliya.

"It turned out that he was a 60-year-old resident of the city of Taybeh. He sustained moderate injuries and was taken for treatment."

Investigations revealed that a group of masked men attacked the victim, spraying his face with pepper spray and stabbing him with a sharp object, they noted.

The police requested the accused remain in custody until the end of the prosecution's decision.

Last month, many Palestinians witnessed attacks by Israeli Occupation settlers during their protest against the Israeli Occupation's aggression in Jerusalem and Gaza.
