11-year-old stabber will remain in Social Services hostel

An 11-year-old Palestinian boy involved in an attack on security guards on the Jerusalem light rail on November 10 will remain in a hostel operated by the Ministry of Welfare and Social Services, a Jerusalem youth court rules.

The child was transferred to the hostel upon being released from a hospital where he was treated after he was shot and injured by a guard during the attack.

The boy, whose name remained unpublished, says he regrets taking part in the attack.
