State files indictments against 19 Kfar Kana alleged rioters

The Northern District Attorney's Office on Wednesday filed indictments against 19 alleged rioters arrested in and around Kafr Kana in recent days.

The rioting and interplay with police included police's killing of Hir Hamdan, for which the police involved are currently under investigation.

Of the 19, 10 are adults and 9 are minors.

They are charged with a range of crimes including attempts to attack police under aggravated circumstances and public disorder related crimes. 

A total of 54 rioters have been arrested in the clashes that have broken out in the North since the fatal shooting of Hamdan on Friday night.

Police assessments hold that within the next week or two, there could well be an ebb in both the rioting in the North and the rioting connected to the Temple Mount.

Police have made the decision to move away from a more offensive approach to the rioting, particularly on the Temple Mount, and are putting more effort into dialogue with local leaders, businessmen and residents – most of it behind the scenes – to try and put an end to the violence.
