Temple Mount Terrorists Indicted

An indictment against five Arab terrorists from Jerusalem was submitted Thursday to the District Court. The five conspired in February to shoot and murder Jewish worshippers on the Temple Mount as well as police officers in East Jerusalem, in addition to intending to kidnap and murder a Jewish hitchhiker. They obtained arms from Hamas and PLO, and were unsuccessful in carrying out their plans.

The Jewish hitchhiker they picked up from a bus stop near Hizma roadblock ended up not possessing any weapon for them to snatch, so they fortunately decided to let him off at his desired destination.
