Israeli-Arab convicted of hate crime against Jewish worshipers

The Jerusalem District Court convicted on Monday an Israeli Arab from Jerusalem on various charges of assault against Jewish worshipers.

The attack occurred while the victims were on their way to Shavuot holiday prayer at the Western Wall, which happened on May 2013.

The court ruled that Ahmed Abu Al-Halaweh, 21, was guilty on charges of assault and battery, aggravated assault, intention of causing bodily harm, and found the crimes to have been committed with clear racial and prejudicial motives.
