Police on Sunday afternoon arrested a ten-year-old Arab boy who was throwing rocks on the light rail in Yerushalayim. The incident occurred near the Shuafat area. No one was injured and no damage was caused. The young terrorist’s parents were summoned to a nearby police station, where the child was being held.

Earlier, police shut down the light rail for a short time after a suspicious object was found at the station near the Central Bus Station. A bomb squad task force was dispatched to destroy the object. Trains throughout the system were delayed for about a half hour.

Meanwhile, security forces rounded up eight Arabs off the coast of Gaza and seized four trawlers. The Arabs claimed to be fishing in an area that is off-limits to fishermen. Last week, an Arab passenger on one such trawler was caught trying to smuggle weapons into Gaza.
