Four Arabs Charged in Planning Jerusalem Wedding Hall Attack


Four Arab residents of East Jerusalem were charged with planning to disguise themselves in hareidi garb, and then open fire in a wedding hall in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Bayit Vagan, where one of the suspects had previously been employed.

The Jerusalem District Attorney filed for charges against Anas Awisat, Basel Avidat, Ahmad Sarour, Jabil Muchbar - all aged 19-21 years - for conspiracy to aid and abet the enemy in a time of war.

The "Nof" wedding hall was targeted because it was known that during an event there would be between 800-1500 potential victims.
