Police and the Shin Bet security service say they arrested six people suspected of throwing rocks at buses traveling on roads in the Negev, according to a statement.

The suspects are residents of the southern Bedouin town of Hura and include five minors and a 22-year-old man. They allegedly carried out several attacks in March, intending to hurt Jews.

A police investigation reveals that some of the suspects were used as observers, while others took on the role of throwing the rocks.

The Beersheba Magistrate’s Court extended the remand of the suspects, and an indictment is set to be filed against them at the beginning of next week.
