Erdan: Old City Shopkeepers Arrested for Not Helping Terror Victim
Minister of Internal Security Gilad Erdan said that a number of shopkeepers in Jerusalem’s Old City were arrested for allegedly not helping Adelle Bennett during Saturday night’s terror attack.
Erdan said that “The police will receive support for any actions taken against terror and incitement.”
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday that he wants Arab shopkeepers in Jerusalem’s Old City who ignored and taunted a Jewish woman who had been stabbed to stand trial. He also wants their shops to be closed down.
According to Maariv, Netanyahu said that he has asked “to take steps against those merchants who were on the path where a Jewish woman ran, stabbed and bleeding, and asked for help. I asked that their shops be closed down and that they be put on trial.”
