Beduin's home fired upon after blaming Arabs for an attack

Several shots were fired at the home of a resident of a Beduin village in northern Israel overnight on Sunday, hours after he went on television to say he thought an attack on a local mosque was carried out by Arabs rather than Jews.

On Saturday evening, Channel 2 aired an interview with Bassam Sawid, a resident of Tuba Zangaria and an IDF veteran who lost his leg while serving in the Second Lebanon War.

Tuba Zangaria's central mosque was the target of an arson and graffiti attack in October, and the words 'price tag' - associated with far-right attackers - was written in charcoal on a mosque wall.
