One of the suspects in the Jerusalem lynch case appeared at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court for a remand hearing on Monday.

 

Upon his arrival, he effectively confessed to the charges and lashed out at the victim, who is still in hospital. "He can die for all I care, he cursed my mother," he said. "There were 40-50 kids who all beat him."

"I was at the square, I was involved," the 15-year-old admitted. "If I catch him I'll punch him. He should die. He's Arab, if you go the Damascus Gate you get stabbed."

 

Meanwhile, police continue to investigate the brutal assault. On Sunday, four more suspects were arrested in connection with the case: A 15-year-old girl and three teenage boys aged 13, 15, and 17.

The 13-year-old suspect was remanded in custody for one day on Monday. His family claims that he was buying a water bottle for the victim at the time of the assault. Police said additional suspects are slated to be arrested.

 

A Jerusalem police official described the course of events. "A girl incited and pushed the others to hurt the Arab youths.

There was an assault and racist slurs. They (the suspects) claim the main reason for the assault was another criminal event involving the girl and the others which took place prior to Thursday." He noted that more than 10 suspects are involved in the incident.

 

On Sunday, a police official said in court, "It was a lynch, plain and simple. The victim lost consciousness and was considered dead until medics arrived and performed CPR."
