Four Incidents of Arson in Efrat Area in One Hour

Four cases of vegetation areas being torched were reported in the span of an hour early Thursday evening near the Judean Jewish city of Efrat. One fire was set next to one of the tunnels on the road leading into Jerusalem. Another was set next to the Shayarot Etzion (Etzion Convoys) Junction at the northern entrance to Efrat. The third blaze was started along the Efrat-Tekoa road and the fourth next to the Jewish community of Neve-Daniel.

While the areas were far away from each other, the method of arson was the same. Palestinian Arabs apparently carried out the arson.
