The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office on Wednesday filed an indictment with the district court against 11 Jewish teens for “price-tag” attacks in August-September in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood.

Because the defendants were minors, their names are under gag order and the indictment was not publicized, but the Justice Ministry released a summary of the indictment.

The statement said that the defendants acted “with intent to physically and economically harm Arabs.”

It said that the defendants were charged with intentional damage to and attempt to damage property, illegal possession of a knife and intentionally endangering people’s lives on a roadway.

More specifically, the statement describes their conduct as follows: damaging cars, throwing rocks at moving cars which they thought had Arabs inside them, piercing car tires and breaking a bus window.

There were five incidents of these attacks on Arab property and the Arabs inside their cars.

The group included lookouts who reported to the rock throwers which cars had Arabs inside and should be attacked.
