Cops Catch J’lem Arabs Who Ambushed Jews on Yom Kippur

Jerusalem Police detectives arrested over the last 24 hours a group of Arabs who hurled rocks at Jews in Beit Hanina on Yom Kippur.

Aryeh Orange, a resident of Pisgat Ze’ev, told Arutz Sheva Tuesday morning that the Jews were headed for a special minyan – prayer quorum – that they conduct annually on Yom Kippur at Beit HaShiva in the predominantly Arab neighborhood of Beit Hanina. The participants make their way on foot from Pisgat Ze’ev to Beit Hanina.

When the holiday ended, the group filed a complaint with the police, which promised to place ambushes in the area and catch the perpetrators. On Monday rocks were thrown at another Jew, and police caught the attackers.

Two months ago, the security officer for Ateret Kohanim Yeshiva, Meir Tal, told Arutz Sheva that the police’s Jerusalem District has been making an effort recently to improve security for the city’s residents and that the efforts are beginning to yield fruit. “There is very widespread activity against attackers of Jews in eastern Jerusalem,” he said. “Every evening, suspects in attacks are arrested. There is a meaningful decline in [security] events.”
