Arab Teens Indicted in Racist Attack on Jewish Family
Five Arab teens from Jerusalem, all aged 14-15, have been indicted for an anti-Semitic attack targeting a Jewish family’s home in the Old City.
The youths are accused of property damage motivated by racism, attempted assault motivated by racism, and rioting.
According to the indictment, the youths met on September 27, 2013 and agreed to throw stones at a home in the Old City solely because its residents were Jewish. They immediately launched a mob attack on the home while the Jewish family – parents and eight children ages 3-15 – were inside.
