Police arrested two Arab men from east Jerusalem for attacking a 57-year-old Jewish man in the Old City on Saturday afternoon. Using the Mabat 2000 system, which employs hundreds of security cameras around the Old City, police were able to identify the suspects even after they had changed clothes.

According to an initial investigation, the suspects, in their 20s, were looking for random Jews to attack, and chose the victim because he was alone. They beat him and then fled. The victim was taken to the hospital with light injuries and released after treatment.
