Israeli police filed a preliminary indictment Sunday afternoon against four teenage Arab terrorists from Jerusalem, in connection with a recent firebombing attack on a hospital in the capital.
Late last month, the four 15-year-old terrorists hurled stones and firebombs at the Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center in northeastern Jerusalem.
A judge extended the suspects’ detention by three days, and prosecutors are expected to file a full indictment in the next few days.
The four terrorists were arrested by Border Police officers and undercover agents earlier this month, after an investigation found the four were responsible for multiple attacks on the hospital.
One of the four terrorists also attacked a bus in the area.
“This was a very serious incident which included firebombs,” the Jerusalem district police department said in a statement Sunday,” targeting, among other things, a hospital, and which was carried out, it is suspected, based on nationalistic motives, and which could have caused serious harm to human life.”
