The Haifa District Attorney filed an indictment against a 32-year-old man from Deir el- Asad, near Karmiel, on Wednesday, charging him with assaulting and threatening a teacher.

According to the indictment, the defendant, Khalid Amun, carried out the attack after the teacher ordered Amun’s relative, a seventh-grade pupil, to leave the classroom after he had interrupted a lesson.

The boy left the room and returned shortly afterward with Amun in tow, who burst into the classroom and began brutally attacking the teacher in front of his pupils with a chair, a table and by kicking and punching him, the indictment said.

Allegedly, Amun continued raining kicks and punches on the teacher even after he fell to the ground.

Amun only stopped his attack when other teachers physically intervened to remove him. The teacher was hospitalized for two days.

Amun is charged with aggravated grievous bodily harm, threats and assaulting a public servant.
