Police on Alert in the North following Mosque Arson

Police in the north are on an increased level of preparedness, Tuesday morning, out of concern for continued disturbances by Arabs in the wake of Sunday evening's arson at a mosque in the Galilee village of Tuba-Zangariya, according to Israel Defense Forces Radio.

The station says other Bedouin communities in the north have declared a general strike as a sign of solidarity.
