Yesterday January 26 in Jerusalem, about 30 to 40 Jewish extremists attacked the restaurant belonging to the Armenian Mihran Grigoryan, and damaged the property with cries of “death to Christians” and “death to Arabs”.
restaurant owner Mihran Grigoryan said the incident happened in the evening, around 10:30 p.m. As a result of the incident, which lasted about 5 minutes, there were no personal injuries, only property and dishes were damaged. “The restaurant was pretty full. The Jewish extremists stood in front of the restaurant and started shouting “death to Christians”, and “death to Arabs”, and uttered various insults, then they started to overturn the tables and chairs placed outside, throwing them at our employees, and our employees hit them as hard as they could to get them out of the area.
