The Israeli Police in Jerusalem apprehended last month three fundamentalists, including two minors, on suspicion that they stabbed an Arab man in Mea Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem. The news were published Tuesday after a gag order was lifted. The victim is a 31 year-old man from East Jerusalem; he suffered serious injuries. The attack took place on December 12, 2008.

Israeli online daily, Haaretz, reported that the victim worked at a banquet hall in the Mea Shearim ultra-Orthodox neighborhood.

After ending his shift at 1 A.M., he was attacked by four Jewish men who first asked him about the time then started stabbing him in different parts of his body.

The Arab man received medical treatment by the Magen Adom Emergency Service before he was moved to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in the city, Haaretz said.

The three assailants were detained later on and confessed that they carried their crime for nationalistic motives.
