Police and the Shin Bet announce the arrests of three suspects in last week’s shooting of a candidate for mayor of Nazareth and his two relatives.
Musab Dukhan, his brother and his cousin were shot and lightly injured in the August 28 incident in the city.
The shooting came amid an unrelenting violent crime wave in Israeli Arab communities that has increasingly spilled into municipal politics.
In their statement, police and the Shin Bet say that after days of investigation, the three suspects were arrested overnight in an apartment that served as a hideout.
Other details of the case are gagged under a court order.
