Police Arrest 9 in Arab ‘Snowball’ Attack on Two Jews
Police have arrested six Arab youth suspected of attacking two young hareidi-religious Jewish men in Jerusalem. The six are believed to have been part of a mob assault that took place a week and a half ago during snowfall in the city.
Police had already arrested three other Arab youth in connection with the attack, bringing the total to nine.
In the attack a large group of young Arab men hurled snow at two young Hassidic men while kicking and humiliating them. The attack took place a short distance from the Old City.
