Anti-Semitic attacks are being reported in US cities as tensions flare over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – CNN

(CNN)Several Jewish people have been attacked in cities across the United States this week.

Authorities are investigating assaults in New York and Los Angeles as tensions flare over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict amid days of violence between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza that have left hundreds of people dead.
A man was arrested after a 29-year-old Jewish man was punched, kicked and pepper-sprayed Thursday during an incident in New York’s Times Square, a source with the New York Police Department told CNN.
The assault involved about five to six men who allegedly yelled anti-Semitic statements, the police source told CNN.
