E. Jerusalem Arabs arrested for attacking Jewish man

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Three Arab teenagers from eastern Jerusalem were arrested on suspicion that they attacked a haredi Orthodox Jewish man.

The teens, all 16, told police after they were arrested Thursday that they attacked the Jewish man because they had been attacked previously by Jews, according to Israel Radio.

They are accused of injuring the 20-year-old man on Wednesday evening as he walked through the Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.
