Arab residents of the central Israel city of Lod are suspected of setting fire to dozens of vehicles belonging to Jews in the Ganei Aviv and Neve Nof neighborhoods last week. No casualties were recorded but a number of the vehicles were badly damaged in the arson attack. Firefighters were called to the scene to doze out the flames.
Yamina MK Ophir Sofer said "defense of our country will not only take place on the frontlines in Judea and Samaria but also in Lod, Jaffa, the Galilee and Negev."
City mayor Yair Revivo wrote on his Facebook page: "I am reporting a serious nationalist attack tonight in Ganei Aviv and Neve Nof. The Shin Bet will have to take care of this incident. We will not shy away from enforcing the law to all residents of the city."
According to Revivo, "the incident happened because this morning the municipality enforced the law and demolished illegal buildings. And in the evening there was a price tag against innocent residents. It will not be and will not be. We will continue to enforce the law."
