Israeli Arab suspects arrested for attacking Jews during ethnic riots last month
Several Israeli Arabs have been arrested for attacking Jews during the ethnic unrest that rocked the country last month, Shin Bet security services and police say.
Three of the suspects are accused of shooting a Jew outside the northern village of Zalafa. Two others allegedly attacked Jews in the city of Kafr Qara.
A joint statement from Shin Bet and police said the three suspects in the shooting planned the May 13 attack and got into a car without a license plate. The man who was shot “hid from the line of fire” and was not injured in the incident, according to the statement.
The suspects, all Zalafa residents, are also accused of taking part in “further violent riots” last month.
The other two suspects, both from Kafr Qara, allegedly took part in “nationalist” attacks. The two are named Bashir Abu Rashid, 21, and Muhammed Hamarsha, 31.
