Julani sustained life-threatening injuries in a brawl between Jewish and Arab youths that took place in Jerusalem in August.

 

Eight of the teens involved were indicted for incitement and aggravated racist assault.

 

A teenaged girl was also indicted in the case, for inciting violence.

 

According to the plea bargain, presented on Tuesday to the Jerusalem District Court, the two defendants, who at the time were 14 and 16 years old, will be convicted of one count of inciting violence and one count of promoting racism.

 

In order to secure the conviction, the prosecution agreed to drop the aggravated assault charges brought against the two.
