Manchester Yeshiva Students Attacked, 1 Critically Injured

An anti-Semitic attack perpetrated by three hoodlums in North Manchester at the Bowker Vale Metrolink station has left one 17-year-old unconscious with a brain bleed and three other young men between the ages of 18 and 20, badly beaten.

From The Yeshiva World News:

The young man is 17 years old and is now in a hospital bed. He was beaten unconscious by three anti-Semites who attacked him and three others in an unprovoked incident.

Police in Manchester, England are looking for witnesses. The attack occurred on Saturday night at the Bowker Vale Metrolink tram station at approximately 11:30 PM. The attackers hurled anti-Semitic curses before the attack.

The victims were pounced upon by a gang of three men, according to police, who proceeded to hurl anti-Semitic verbal abuse at them before launching a sudden, unprovoked attack.

The three other victims are aged 18, 18, and 20.

The demographics of Manchester have changed dramatically, with the Islamic population of the city nearly doubling in the past 12 years. It is now approximately ten percent Muslim.

Please say tehillim for Moshe ben Sharon.

    From a shliach at yeshivas lubavitch manchester: parents of bochurim at the yeshivah should know that it wasn’t bochurim from the chabad yeshivah, and that the chabad yeshivah is extremely safe (has security posted at the door during all operational hours).
