Minor Admits Involvement in Attacks on Arabs in J'lem

A minor girl confessed, Monday, to aggravated assault out of racial motives on unnamed Arabs, last August, in what is known as Kikar Hachatulot (Cat's Square) between Hillel and Rivlin Streets in downtown Jerusalem. She also admitted to aggravated causing of serious injury to Jamal Julani in nearby Kikar Tzion (Zion Square).

The Justice Ministry said the confession was part of a plea-bargain agreement in which she will be charged with incitement to racism but charges of incitement to violence in each incident will be quashed.
