17-Year-Old Arab Attacker To Remain in Custody

The Supreme Court overturned a decision of the Jerusalem District Court to release a 17-year-old Jerusalem resident of Arab ethnicity. The suspect was involved in throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at police and at the homes of Jewish neighbors.

Judge Uri Shoham wrote in his decision that releasing the suspect presented a clear level of danger. It was not noted whether or not the suspect was a member of any terrorist organizations.
