Four Arabs indicted for assault on Haredi man near Jerusalem’s Old City

Four Arabs have been indicted in the Jerusalem District Court for an assault on a Haredi man in the city some two weeks ago, as Israel was in the throes of massive Arab-Jewish unrest in the capital and throughout the country.

The four, aged 17 and 18, are accused of mobbing the Jewish man near the Old City’s Damascus Gate and repeatedly beating him before policemen intervened and chased them away.
