A Jerusalem police spokesman on Monday, 14 Sivan, announced the arrest of a suspect believed to have played a role in the attack of an IDF soldier who entered Meah Shearim.
On May 21, 2018, police received a call for a soldier and his father that drove into Meah Shearim and found themselves surrounded by Chareidi extremists, who began cursing them and banging on the vehicle and its windows. This was followed by eggs and other objects, which were tossed in their direction.
Police on Sunday night arrived in Beit Shemesh and arrested the 19-year-old in the attack. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday. Police add that additional arrests are expected.
