Five Arabs Charged with Attacking Security Forces

It was disclosed, Monday, that the Minorities Division in the Central Unit of the Shabak Israel Security Agency arrested five Arabs - including three minors - in the Shiloach (Silwan in Arabic) neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem, on suspicion of throwing dozens of rocks, flares and firebombs at police and Border Police forces and Jonathan House in the last year and a half. In addition to damage caused to Jonathan House, the attacks damaged patrol cars and jeeps.

Indictments were filed against the five, Monday morning, in the Jerusalem District Court. The quintet refers to itself as the Milad Ayash Brigades, after a teenager who died in Arab rioting last May.
