Incident comes a week after 28 cars were reportedly vandalized in another West Bank village, near Ramallah
This is the fourth time in five years that the monastery and its cemetery were vandalized
According to indictment, the suspects, age 16 and 21, searched for Arabs to attack and used stones and electric shocker
