Arabs Attack Jewish Youth, Police Arrest Jews


The Honenu organization released a statement reporting that two Jewish youth were attacked by an Arab gang and then arrested by Israeli police. The alleged incident occurred near Kfar Hassidim. The two minors were riding their bicycles at night when they were confronted by a large group of Arab residents who reportedly beat them and damaged their bicycles. When the Jewish youth called the police emergency number, they were arrested and interrogated for several hours. Honenu stated that the police suspected them of planning an anti-Arab "price tag" vandalism attack and accused them of smelling like gasoline. The two were released without any charges being filed.
