National Union: Protect Tuba Suspect's Family


Three members of the National Union Knesset faction sent an urgent letter to Public Safety Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich on Monday, demanding that he provide police protection for the family of a man arrested in connection with the torching of a mosque in the Upper Galilee village of Tuba Zangariya last week.

The letter said members of the family feel threatened by residents of Tuba Zangariya, which is not far away due to incitement by the media, which placed the blame on residents of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
