The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court on Monday issued the first-ever indictment for a "price tag" operation, charging two 18-year-olds and a minor in connection to two incidents that occurred in March.

The suspects included 18-year-old Hillel Leibowitz of Hebron, 18-year-old Yisrael Katz of Sde Eliezer, and an unnamed minor from the center of Israel.

The indictment alleges that on March 13th, the day of the funeral for the Fogel family of the West Bank settlement of Itamar, Leibowitz vandalized an SUV belonging to Jerusalem resident Muhammed Bakrit, while it was parked in the Givat Shaul neighborhood. Leibowitz allegedly punctured four of the Toyota Land Cruiser's tires and broke several windows, causing some NIS 23,716 in damage.
