Four Arabs Arrested For Throwing Rocks at Jerusalem Light Rail

Four Arab youths were arrested in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat Sunday night. They are suspected of throwing rocks at a light rail train passing through the community. Border Patrol officers and undercover units stationed in the area at the time of the attack took the suspects into custody.  

No injuries were reported.

Shuafat’s light rail stop was destroyed in the July rioting following the revenge slaying of Muhammad Abu-Khdeir for the murders of three yeshiva students. Because of the large cost of repairs, the municipality has since commissioned several miniature drones equipped with infrared cameras to survey the tense area day and night.
