Via The Times Of Israel, a man was flying on Ethiopian Airlines from N’Djamena, Chad to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, when he was beaten by another passenger.
Here are the highlights of the story:
The suspect reportedly beat the Israeli man, identified by Ynet as a 54-year-old named Arik, with a metal tray and shouted “Allah is greatest” and “kill the Jews” in Arabic on the flight from Chad to Ethiopia’s capital on Thursday.
The Israeli man told Ynet that just before landing in the Ethiopian capital, the passenger behind him “identified me as Israeli and Jewish,” then started choking him, then beat him over the head.
“Only after a few seconds, just before I was about to lose consciousness, did I manage to call out and a flight attendant who saw what was happening summoned her colleagues,” he said.
After he was pulled free by airline employees, he said his attacker tried to rally passengers and crew to “finish me off.”
Apparently the Sudanese attacker has remained in custody since the incident.
