Police say they have arrested a Jewish resident of Harish suspected of setting fire to a Jewish shrine in central Israel last Friday.
The fire caused extensive damage to a building worshipers revere as the final resting place of the biblical Benjamin, one of the 12 sons of the patriarch Jacob.
The suspect is a 24-year-old resident of Harish. He will be brought before the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court for a remand hearing. The judge will also weigh a request to conduct a psychological exam on the suspect.
