Another friend who also tried to help, was thrown on a nearby parking car. When the attackers heard a couple of girls scream, they fled the scene.


Barak noted that none of the local onlookers lent a hand, " even the club's security did nothing to help, 2019, Warsaw, Jews are attacked, and the polish are doing nothing to help, history repeats itself".

He blamed the Israeli embassy in Poland and the Israeli ministry of foreign affairs for not helping his brother, "they sent us to deal with the polish police ourselves, there wasn't even one Israeli representative present to help us, lucky for us and for my brother, he was helped by the college of management academic studies, and the head of his delegation, aid that the Israeli embassy didn't see fit to lend us. my brother was lucky, who knows who'll be next".


According to Israel's ministry of foreign affairs, the local consul, Menashe Kamara, was made aware of the attack on Saturday morning.
