4th Suspect Nabbed in December Dahariya Arson


Police arrested a 21-year-old, Monday evening in the area of the southern Hevron Hills Jewish community of Havat Ma'on, on suspicion of involvement in the burning of a car, last December in the nearby village of Dahariya. Three other suspects were arrested at the end of December. They were also suspected of torching a taxi and spray-painting graffiti on the wall of a mosque in the southern Hevron Hills and planning other damage in the nearby village of Samu'a.

The arrest is the fourth in the "Red Japanese" operation against "price tag" vandalism, ostensible carried out against Arab and leftist targets when action is taken or threatened against Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron).
