More Remand for Vandalism Suspect from Yitzhar

The remand of a resident of the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Yitzhar on suspicion of vandalizing a mosque in the northern Israeli-Arab city of Umm Al-Fahm was extended to Wednesday, the Honenu legal-aid organization said on Sunday.

The father of five and his wife were one of two couples arrested, last Wednesday, because their car matched the description of a vehicle that had been seen in Umm Al-Fahm at the the time of the incident.
