About three weeks ago, the Jerusalem District Attorney's Office submitted to the city's district court an indictment against Katsaf, 22 years old, and a 16-year-old minor, residents of Elad and Jerusalem, for their involvement in setting fire to a trash can, causing a fire and harming a resident of the area, a mother of 11 children, who was passing by and was seriously injured when the burning trash can hurt her

The two are yeshiva students in the city, followers of Breslav, who participated in the ultra-Orthodox demonstration there about a month ago.

The indictment attributes to the defendants the commission of crimes of serious injury under aggravating circumstances, arson, endangering roads and obstructing a police officer in the performance of his duties.

The prosecution asked the court to order their detention until the end of the legal proceedings against them.

The woman, Mirel Dzalovski, a 40-year-old resident of the city, passed around 10:30 p.m. near a demonstration attended by hundreds of ultra-Orthodox on Bar Ilan Street in the city.

According to the indictment, the defendants who set the tin on fire dragged it down the street and it hit the woman, crushing her against the wall and she was seriously injured.

Medical teams that arrived at the scene evacuated her in a minor condition to the hospital suffering from injuries to her ribs and stomach, but hours later her condition worsened and she remains hospitalized there to this day.
