The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday filed three indictments with the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court against three teenagers for attacking police during Tuesday’s riot in Jerusalem.
The identities of the teenagers, aged 17, from Beit Shemesh, 14 from Jerusalem and 14 from Netanya, are under gag order since they are minors. The indictments state that the Beit Shemesh and Jerusalem minors both blocked the Jerusalem light rail and physically punched multiple police officers who tried to arrest them. The two were charged with attacking police under aggravated circumstances and disrupting public order. The Netanya minor threw rocks at police and was charged with attempting to attack police.
