Israel's police arrested on Sunday night an Israeli who – along with several other settlers - attacked an Arab bus driver, leaving him with injuries, Israel's Channel 2 reported.
The settlers chanted "death to Arabs" while attacking the bus driver and threatened to kill him, the channel added.
Meanwhile, eyewitnesses told The Anadolu Agency that a group of Israeli settlers assaulted two Palestinians from Jerusalem Sunday night while working in a petrol station in the Ein Karem neighborhood.
One of the Palestinians sustained injuries that required his transfer to a hospital, the witnesses added.
Tension has run high in the region since Israeli authorities briefly closed the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East Jerusalem in late October following the shooting of an extremist rabbi in West Jerusalem.
The mosque closure, along with the killing by Israeli police of a young Palestinian man suspected of shooting the rabbi, has prompted angry protests by Palestinians in East Jerusalem.
Since then, several Israelis have been killed and injured in a spate of attacks by Palestinians – both in the occupied territories and inside the self-proclaimed Jewish state.
