The Jerusalem District Court indicted Friday a 16-year-old Palestinian girl who carried out a stabbing terror attack in Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda Market on November 23.

Two teenage Palestinian girls carried out the attack, in which they stabbed a 70-year-old Arab man in the head with scissors after apparently mistaking him as a Jew. One assailant was shot and killed at the scene.

The other faced two charges of attempted murder and possession of a knife.

According to the indictment, a day before the incident a relative of the defendant told her that she should carry out a terror attack to avenge the death of her brother, who died in clashes with the IDF in 2013.
