According to the report the teens affiliated with the Arab party began shouting obscenities at the girls and chased them away, pelted them with rocks and smashed the windows of a car that was picking them up.
They then fled the scene.
The party filed a police complaint. A statement by Otzma LeYisrael heads MKs Arieh Eldad and Michael Ben Ari said Monday that "This was a very grave incident. We expect the police to make arrests in this case.
"We will arrive at that neighborhood on Election Day to make sure that those bullies understand that they don't scare us."
