Four Jaljulya teenagers were indicted Monday in the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court for a machine-gun attack on a school bus near Kafr Kasim last month in which 14-year-old Amjad Shawana was shot dead. According to police, the suspects planned out the attack in retaliation for a minor incident with other teenagers, which involved some pushing during a previous school bus journey. Police learned of a feud between pupils from Kafr Kasim and Jaljulya which erupted a few days before the shooting. Shortly before 4 p.m. on October 8, the school bus came under attack as it drove through the Sharon District en route to Kafr Kasim. Several bullets fired from a machine gun shattered windows as they penetrated the bus, striking Shahuna and injuring a second youth, Souliman Omar.
