3 Arab Minors Indicted for Attack on Jew in Old City

Jerusalem District prosecutors submitted indictments to the Jerusalem District Court, Monday, charging three Arab minors with a racially-motivated attack on a Jew, last Wednesday, on Hagai Street in Jerusalem's Old City. According to the indictment, the suspects conspired to attack a Jew after one of them was hit in the shoulder as he passed a religious Jew earlier in the week. They face charges of conspiracy to commit a crime and aggravated assault to cause injury on grounds of racism or hostility to the public.

The minors were placed on restrictive house arrest. The prosecution is asking extension of the restrictions until the end of legal proceedings against them.
