3 Israeli Arabs arrested for firebomb attack

Three Israeli-Arabs from Jaffa have been arrested in connection with a firebomb attack on a police car earlier this month, the Shin Bet security service says.

The three admitted to carrying out the attack on October 8 out of nationalistic motives and in solidarity with the Palestinian people amid tensions on the Temple Mount, the Shin Bet says in a statement.

An 18-year-old and two minors of an undisclosed age were arrested in the joint police-Shin Bet investigation.

The 18-year-old was identified as Mahmoud Galoush, a Jaffa resident.
