Three Palestinian men were indicted for planning to attack activist Yehuda Glick and right-wing lawmaker Moshe Feiglin during a visit to the Temple Mount.
The men, ages 18 to 21 from eastern Jerusalem, were charged over the weekend with conspiracy to injure a person using weapons and with nationalistic motivation.
The attack was to occur on Oct. 30, the day after Glick was shot four times outside the Menachem Begin Center in Jerusalem after taking part in a conference in which he spoke about the Jewish right to pray on the Temple Mount. Feiglin attended the conference.
According to the indictment, the men planned to attack Feiglin and Glick, who were scheduled to bring a group to the site, with firecrackers and stones, which would serve to intimidate and possibly injure them. They planned to escape by running into the Al-Aksa Mosque and blending in with worshippers at morning services.
