Haredi Editor Attacked; 2 Suspects Arrested

The Jerusalem Police arrested two ultra-Orthodox youths Sunday, for allegedly assaulting the editor of a influential haredi newspaper.

Natan Grossman, the editor in chief of the haredi daily “HaPeles” was assaulted on Friday outside his Jerusalem home. He sustained mild injuries.

HaPeles is the rival of the haredi Lithuanian daily Yated Ne’eman. Grossman was once the latter’s editor in chief before moving to HaPeles.
