3 young Israelis indicted for throwing Molotov cocktails at Arabs in June

Prosecutors have filed an indictment against three young Israelis at the Haifa District Court today after police arrested them earlier in July on suspicion of attacking Arab Israelis with Molotov cocktails last month.

Police say the three, residents of Givat Olga in the northern city of Hadera, approached two people on the beach, then, after speaking to them in Arabic, threw the explosives, which failed to explode and did not cause injuries.

Police say the suspects’ motives were nationalistic.
