The Radio Bethlehem 2000 has reported that four students of a Jewish Yeshiva in the area carried out the attack. Their ages are between 17 and 26.
It added that the assailants destroyed 15 gravestones in the Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery in the King David Tomb.
The Israeli Police said that two of the apprehended Israeli assailants are members of the Hilltop Youth Movement, an extremist group of Israeli settlers responsible for numerous attacks against Palestinian lands and property.
The two have previously been apprehended by the Israeli Police in the West Bank, and were ordered out of the area due to their illegal activities, but they violated the order and the police failed to apprehend them.
Earlier on Monday, the Police apprehended two Israeli teenagers, 14 and 16 years of age, on suspicion of being involved in defacing and damaging eight Palestinian cars, near Nabi Saleh Graveyard, in occupied Jerusalem.
