A Sderot resident repeatedly punched the 19-year-old and threatened to kill 'the stinking Arab' after the lifeguard - from Bedouin town of Rahat - cautioned the 34-year-old man against approaching the pool area while smoking and drinking

A resident of the southern city of Sderot violently attacked a Bedouin lifeguard at a local pool and hurled racial slurs at the 19-year-old after being asked not to approach the area while smoking and drinking, said the indictment filed against the 34-year-old man Monday.



Aviad Dahan was charged by the Kiryat Gat Magistrate's Court with causing serious bodily injuries and threatening the lifeguard from the Bedouin town of Rahat at a public swimming pool in the city, after the man had been asked by the teen keep away from the pool while intoxicated.

The request prompted the 34-year-old to start punching the Rahat native with his fists and shouting that “he hates Arabs” while his wife slapped the teen’s face.


At some point during the altercation, Dahan allegedly threatened to kill “the stinking Arab.”


The indictment states that during his interrogation, Dahan reiterated his sentiments, saying what prompted him to lash out was seeing “Arabs and Jews side by side.”

The defendant claims he intends to stick to this line of defense during his trial hearing.


Dahan’s wife, Nofar, was not indicted in the case despite approaching the lifeguard during the incident and repeatedly slapping the teen’s face in front of dozens of onlookers, many of whom were children.
