The Haifa District Attorney served an indictment on Thursday charging six people with offenses relating to an vicious assault against two off-duty IDF soldiers in the northern city last month.

The indictment, served in the Haifa District Court, charges Haifa residents Marwan Attaleh, aged 25, Hafez Kais aged 54 and four minors aged between 15 and 17 with harm with aggravating intent.Although the hearing was in closed court, Haifa District Court Judge Ron Shapira allowed reporters to be present at the start of the proceedings and to take photographs, although he insisted that any pictures of the minors must be blurred to prevent their identification. A strict gag order remains regarding all details that could identify the minors, as is standard practice in criminal trials.
