The Jerusalem District Attorney’s office indicted six Jewish teenagers on Wednesday in connection with a savage beating of an Arab man on September 5. Ibrahim Abu Ta’ah, 28, from east Jerusalem, underwent surgery for a broken ankle and injuries sustained in the attack at Shaare Tzedek Hospital. The teenagers, all Jerusalem residents, are between the ages of 14 and 16.

According to the indictment, Abu Ta’ah went to a club in Talpiyot on September 5 with two Jewish friends from his work at the Mamillah hotel. Just after midnight, the trio drove to the Katamonim neighborhood to bring their co-worker home because she was very drunk. At the beginning of Rabbi Tsadok Street, Abu Ta’ah’s friend stopped the car and Abu Ta’ah got out with the girl because she was vomiting.
