Six Arabs were arrested this weekend in connection with a widely publicized attack on two Ultra Orthodox Jews on January 10th.

The two Jews were walking out of the Old City of Jerusalem through the Shechem Gate when they were ambushed by a group of Arabs who assaulted them, threw snow at them, and generally ridiculing them with shouts of “Allahu Akbar.”

The arrest of the six suspects follows the earlier arrest of another three participants in the attack. The remand of the first three has been extended by four days.

The police were initially hesitant about launching an investigation into the attack, and the victims themselves did not lodge an official complaint, explaining that they felt the complaint would not be useful. Public pressure, generated especially through social media, motivated the police to investigate the incident and they have now announced that all the assailants have been apprehended.

One of the victims related what he experienced: “Dozens of Arabs surrounded us and began to throw snow at us. They played with our hats, knocked them down, punched us and kicked us in the face and on the back. We were two against tens, and could do nothing. I was sure I was not going to survive. I was drenched from the snow, and surrounded by Arabs, and no one helped.”
