Arabs Indicted for Attempted Murder

Ad Feedback - JERUSALEM, Israel - The Jerusalem District Attorney's office indicted three Israeli Arabs for attempted murder, with a fourth accomplice to be charged separately, following a February attack on an American Jewish exchange student.

In February, four Arab Israeli men attacked the student, who was studying at Jerusalem's Hebrew University, as he walked through the Jerusalem Forest en route to the university's dormitories.

Ahmed Ouda, 28, Fathi Zeytun, 18, and Rabiya Jit, 21, and a fourth as yet unnamed accomplice, all from the east Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Silwan, jumped on the student, beating him while attempting to slash his throat.

The unnamed Arab managed to deeply slash the victim's right cheek before fleeing the scene.

When the four fled, the student made his way along the path for another 40 minutes before reaching the Old City's Dung Gate, where he summoned help and was evacuated to the city's Sha'are Tzedek hospital for treatment.
