A Swiss neo-Nazi has been jailed for 2 years for attacking an Orthodox Jew in Zurich.

The 30-year-old was sentenced yesterday, after attacking the man in 2015. He was also fined 1000 Francs.

The neo-Nazi thug had performed a Nazi salute and verbally abused the Orthodox Jewish man before spitting on him and attacking him.

He has a previous conviction for a similar attack, for which he served 12 of an original 30 months..

There has been a notable increase in antisemitic incidents in Switzerland in recent years, and antisemitic attitudes appear to be relatively common in the country according to ADL research.
