Charges Filed against Arab Youth for Attacking Haredi Youth

Jerusalem prosecutors filed charges against a 15-year-old Arab youth and Haifa resident, for causing a serious injury under severe circumstances and for the obstruction of justice.

The charges indicate that the youth and a friend attacked a Jewish youth in Jerusalem’s Old City. The two beat the Jewish youth, kicked him in his face and head, simply because he was a Jew. Following the attack, the two fled the scene.
