Pro-Israel marchers assaulted in Malmo, Sweden

A group of men harassed and assaulted pro-Israel pride parade participants on Saturday.

The pro-Israel participants of the Malmo Pride Parade were approached by a seemingly Middle Eastern gang of men, reports The Jerusalem Post.

A video of the incident circulating on social media shows the group of pride participants wearing rainbow garments and flags, some with stars of David emblazoned on them, one with an Israeli flag, which was snatched by one of the gang members.

In the footage, men drove up alongside the pride marchers in the street verbally harassing them. They exited the vehicle, and were joined by other people in the harassing of the group. One woman in a keffiyeh appeared to attempt to intervene in the violence.
