Two residents of east Jerusalem were rearrested on Sunday for allegedly carrying out a terrorist ramming attack in Jerusalem in March, after they were released earlier in the investigation, according to Walla! news.
The two suspects, aged 19 and 26, were arrested soon after the ramming at an intersection near the Jaffa Gate to the Old City, but were released after the incident was determined to be an accident by the Israel Police's Traffic Department.
A Shin Bet investigation found that the two were suspected of conducting a ramming attack, and they were arrested again.
In March, two yeshiva students who were waiting to cross the street near the Jaffa Gate were run over by a vehicle driven by two people identified as being from minority groups.
