Three Druze Soldiers Arrested for Throwing Explosive at Palestinian Home


Three IDF Druze soldiers were arrested on Monday on suspicion of throwing an explosive device at a Palestinian home in the Beit Lechem area.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said the military is investigating the event, and that there were no casualties in the incident.

The preliminary probe suggests the incident is connected with the kidnapping and killing of Israeli Druze Tiran Fero, 18, last week.

The snatching of the wounded teen by Palestinian terrorists sparked protests from the Israeli Druze communities, with some demonstrators threatening to enter Jenin and retrieve Fero – who died shortly after being kidnapped. Images of masked armed men were also circulating on social media.

Fero’s body was eventually returned to his family, following 30 hours of intense negotiations between Israel’s defense establishment and the Palestinian Authority.
