Two teens were charged with attempted murder Monday for the stabbing of a 16-year-old boy at a high school in the central city of Rehovot last month.
The suspects were also indicted for trespassing to commit a crime and obstruction of justice.
One of the teens was charged with illegally possessing a knife, and the other with carrying a weapon.
According to the indictment, the victim is still hospitalized and while he is able to breathe independently, he is unable to speak or perform other functions.
Neither the suspects nor the victim have been publicly named as all three are minors.
The indictment submitted to the Central Juvenile District Court in Lod said the two suspects came to the school on December 13, 2022, armed with a knife and rock.
They jumped over the fence and began chasing the victim.
The victim ran into the building and shut himself in the principal’s office. The suspects threw a rock at the teen as they pushed their way into the room.
The two teens then punched the boy, and he was stabbed several times.
The two suspects then ran from the school, washed their clothes and got rid of the knife, the indictment said.
Municipal sources quoted by the Ynet news site at the time of the attack said police had been warned several days before the stabbing that the boy was under threat.
