Israel arrests teen girls over hate attack on Palestinians - Yahoo! News Jerusalem police arrested two 15-year-old girls on Monday, bringing to seven the number of Jewish teenagers arrested in connection with a brutal hate attack on young Palestinians last week. "Two 15-year-old girls were arrested today, in addition to the five youngsters already arrested," police spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP. "One of the girls incited the teenagers to attack the young Arabs by saying that she had been attacked by Arabs in the past." The Israeli government has expressed condemnation of the attack, which took place in Jerusalem's central Zion Square, a busy late-night meeting place in the heart of the city's bar and entertainment district. Press reports said there were hundreds of onlookers who failed to intervene.
