Israeli Police arrensted on Thursday seven Israeli Arabs from the Galilee village of Makr-Jedida on suspicion of torching the local police station during clashes in Arab towns in Israel last month that left 13 1948-Palestinians killed and hundreds injured, reported The Jerusalem Post newspaper.
The paper added that those arrested were put under house arrest pending trial.
A committee of inquiry has been set up by the Israeli government to probe into the killings, which Arab leaders charge they were deliberate.
