LGBTQ+ youth violently attacked in Jerusalem

A group of LGBTQ+ youth were violently attacked near the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem on Friday, while they were on their way to a conference on transgender issues being held in Tel Aviv.

In a post on Facebook, Tsion Eliash stated that they were walking with their friend towards the bus stations in front of International Convention Center in Jerusalem on Friday to wait for a shuttle to the convention in Tel Aviv, when a group of teenagers began shouting at them “This isn’t Tel Aviv!” and “Go to Gaza, be lesbian there!”

Eliash described how bystanders in the area watched and did nothing as the teenagers attacked them.
