The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office on Thursday issued an indictment against a 15-year-old Arab girl on two charges of attempted murder and possession of a knife.

According to the indictment, earlier this month the unidentified teenager confessed to attempting to stab two Jews in the Old City’s Jewish Quarter so she could “die a martyr.”

Police arrested her before she could stab her intended victims.

Meanwhile on Wednesday, at approximately 7:30 p.m., police arrested two Arab boys, aged 12 and 13, respectively, for carrying concealed switchblades with the intent of stabbing Jews in downtown Jerusalem.

Border Police officers spotted the youths behaving suspiciously at the intersection of Hahoma Hashlishit and Heil Hahandasa streets, Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.
