JERUSALEM: Israeli prosecutors have charged two young Israelis with a racially-inspired attack in 2013 on dozens of Arab-owned vehicles in a village just outside Jerusalem, the justice ministry said on Monday. During the incident in June last year, the tires of 34 cars were punctured and racist slogans were scrawled on a wall in Abu Ghosh, an Arab-Israeli village west of Jerusalem. A statement from ministry said Arye Pearl, a 21-year-old from the extremist settlement of Yitzhar in the northern West Bank, was charged with vandalism of property and cars with a racism motive at Jerusalem District Court on Monday. The second suspect, a minor at the time of the attack, was indicted on the same charges on Sunday at Jerusalem juvenile court.
