Two settlers have been arrested on suspicion of being involved in the
vandalization of a Palestinian mosque in the West Bank village of
Jabah last month.

The arrests were made by Judea and Samaria district police, and are
part of a wider wave of arrests of far-right activists in connection
with a variety of hate crimes, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.



In last month's incident, the mosque was set fire to and the words
"Ulpana war" were spray painted, referring to a neighborhood in a
settlement slated for demolition.

The suspects are due to appear before a Jerusalem Magistrate's Court
on Thursday.
