Police on Sunday said they arrested a Jewish person 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 site is located near Route 55 highway, between the central city of Kfar Saba and the West Bank town of Qalqilya.
Police said the suspect is a 24-year-old resident of the northern city of Harish.
The circumstances of the incident are still unclear.
The unnamed man is set to be brought before the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court for a remand hearing on Monday.
The judge is expected to weigh a request to conduct a psychological exam on the suspect.
