83-year old man attacked and injured in German #BringBackOurBoys vigil

There was a vigil in Hamburg, Germany, last Friday on the Reesendamm Bridge to show solidarity with the kidnapped teens Eyal Ifrach, Gilad Schaer and Naftali Frenkel.

About 50 people came to support the boys.

There was a counter-demonstration by the Palestine AG of Hamburg Attac Group and the Regional Group of Hamburg German-Palestinian Society, with about 15 people.

According to reports, at one point one of the anti-Israel protesters who was carrying a sign to boycott Israel attacked an 83-year old pro-Israel protester, causing him to fall to the ground.His daughter came to help him and she was kicked by the antisemite.

The elderly man could not walk after the attack and had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The haters continued to march aggressively in front of the mostly elderly Zionists, Police eventually separated the two groups.

As of Sunday, the elderly man was still in the hospital.
