A 15-year-old youth, suspected of being involved in beating up 17-year-old Arab, testified at his remand hearing in court Monday, admitting involvement in the incident expressing no remorse for his actions.

"Yes, I was there." the boy said. "He insulted my mom. So I caught him and beat him. I hit him and I hope he gets it again. I hope he dies. You can't go by Damascus Gate without getting stabbed. So why do they come here? I beat him and I'd beat him again."

Four suspects were being remanded Monday, including a 13-year-old boy, a 15-year-old boy, a 17-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl.
