Teens indicted for attacking Jewish burial society vehicle at Mount of Olives

Seven At-Tur neighborhood teens were indicted Thursday for attacking a Jewish burial society vehicle and Jerusalem security forces with rocks and fireworks last month, the Jerusalem District Attorney's Office said.

The teens had allegedly blocked streets in the Mount of Olives neighborhood and destroyed cameras to force security personnel to respond to the scene. When police officers arrived they were pelted with prepared rocks and fireworks.

The security vehicle for a Jewish burial society was also pelted with projectiles, forcing the driver to flee the scene.

The offenders, all residents of Jerusalem, were aged 15-17.
