Arson in Arab Village next to Kedumim

A house was damaged by fire, Monday evening in the Samarian Arab village of Far'ata, next to the Jewish community of Kedumim. The owner of the house said he saw two people set fire to the front of the house and run. While Israeli media have reported the incident as "price tag" vandalism carried out by Jews, the police say they are looking at the case from all angles, including a dispute between families.

The village mosque was torched at the end of June, at which time vandals sprayed graffiti on its walls which read, "The war has begun," and "You will pay the price soon."
