A Shin Bet announcement revealed Sunday morning that a joint Shin Bet, IDF and Israel Police operational activity led to the arrest of three Samaria residents on Saturday.

The three, two aged 19 and one aged 24, are suspected to have set one fire close to their village and another fire close to the main traffic artery south of the city Ariel.

The Shin Bet investigation of the three revealed that they did set the fires as an act of terror, citing a nationalist motive.
Their files have been passed on to the military prosecution, who will proceed with the legal process.
