JNS.org – An Israeli court on Monday charged seven Israelis with committing crimes against Palestinians, including the torching of cars and homes.

The charges — which include weapons possession, assault, and arson — relate to several of the so-called “price tag” attacks carried out by Jewish extremists.

The new charges come just a week after after an Israeli military court charged Sgt. Elor Azaria, the 20-year-old Israel Defense Forces soldier who shot a neutralized Palestinian terrorist in Hebron last month, with manslaughter.
