The prosecution of the Jerusalem District filed an indictment with the District Court against Murad Rajabi, a 20-year-old resident of the Arab neighborhood of Silwan in Jerusalem, for attempted murder and possession of a weapon.

According to the indictment, the terrorist left his house on his motorcycle, equipped with a knife.

Near Hevron Road in southern Jerusalem, he accelerated after noticing several youth who were apparently religious Jews, and crashed into one of them intentionally. The young Jewish man flew up in the air upon impact and suffered three cases of broken bones.

Afterward, Rajabi turned to attack the second youth with his knife and motorcycle helmet and, before he was neutralized, wounded the second youth in the face.
