Israel Arrests Arab Citizen who 'Anticipated' Jerusalem Suicide Attack
An Arab Israeli from Jaffa has been arrested by Israeli security forces because he posted a message on a Hebrew internet forum saying there would be a "big attack in Jerusalem” a few hours before a major suicide bombing killed 16 last Thursday.
According to Israel Radio, the police tracked the suspect and arrested him to “check if he was just writing this to tease Jews on the forum, or knew about the attack beforehand.”
Meanwhile, a Palestinian was arrested during clashes with Israeli forces occupying Orient House in east Jerusalem.
