An indictment was filed Monday against seven Israelis suspected of conducting "Jewish terror activities" against Palestinians. 

The names of the accused were not released to the public.

The motion filed in the Lod District Court accused the suspects of violent crimes, weapons possession, and other nationalistic activities directed at Palestinians and their property in the West Bank. 

This is the first major legal action against Israelis perpetrating violence against Palestinians since January, when two Israelis were charged with murder in the arson of the Dawabsha family home. Ben-Uliel, a 21-year-old from Jerusalem, was charged with three counts of murder while the minor was charged as an accessory to murder.
