Jerusalem District Police on Tuesday arrested three men suspected of involvement in the arson of Betar Jerusalem's offices last Friday.

Police gave no further details on the suspects.

The fire caused major damage to the offices, located at Jerusalem's Bayit Vagan.

The incident came as the club was embroiled in a battle with racist fans who object to Betar signing two Muslim Chechen players.
