United Torah Judaism MK Meir Porush was attacked near his home in Jerusalem on Monday morning, Israel Police Spokesperson said in a statement.
According to Israeli media, the elected official was attacked by two men who tried to cut his beard and then ran away, but he did not require medical attention.
Security forces are searching the area for the suspected attackers.

Knesset Speaker MK Mickey Levy spoke to Porush and expressed his shock about the attack. Levy also spoke to Jerusalem Police Department District Commander, Superintendent Doron Turgeman and discussed the incident’s investigation and operational ways to apprehend the attackers as soon as possible.
“I am shocked by the violent attack of MK Rabbi Meir Porush by dangerous attackers in Jerusalem,” he wrote. “This is a new and dangerous low point and crosses a red line. The police must act quickly and get its hands on the attackers, and act against them with the full might of the law. It is unfathomable that a public servant is attacked, harmed or feels threatened in any way,” he wrote.
