Jewish teens arrested in Arab stabbing

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli police arrested two teenagers in connection with the stabbing of an Arab man in Jerusalem.

An Arab resident of eastern Jerusalem was stabbed in the back three times near the fervently Orthodox Mea Shearim neighborhood late Tuesday night. The victim, 31, told police that his attackers were four religious Jews.

The two 17-year-olds will go before a judge on Thursday. Police are still looking for the prime suspects.

Police believe the attacks were nationalistically motivated.
