Ten Israeli Tourists Hurt In Anti-Semitic Attack In Argentina

Ten Israeli tourists were wounded in an anti-Semitic attack at a hostel in a small Argentine village. Three assailants burned, robbed, and beat the tourists at the Onda Azul hostel in Lago Puelo, in southern Argentina, between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Monday, the Argentine media reported. Police in the Chubut province are investigating.

“It was a terrifying moment, several hours of fear,” hostel owner Sergio Polak told the local media.

Monica Sasso, the area delegate for the National Institute Against Discrimination, or INADI, confirmed to reporters that the attack took several hours.

Polak also said the attackers threw stones and Molotov cocktails. He alleged that the assailants were neighborhood residents who live very close to the hostel, and that they are known to police, “but they are free and nobody has been arrested yet.”

The hostel, which shut down temporarily after the attack, usually houses guests from Israel and tries to attract them through a Hebrew-language Facebook page.(JTA)
