Six Arab residents of the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, including five minors, were arrested Sunday morning on arson charges for allegedly throwing firebombs at Jewish homes in the area.
Police said the arrests were carried out after obtaining warrants to search each suspect’s home amid an ongoing investigation.
According to the investigation, the suspects attacked the homes to force the Jewish families to permanently flee the area.
The suspects were arraigned at Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Sunday, where a judge extended their remand amid the ongoing investigation.
