Two youths aged 17 and 20 from the northern village of Mahar, near
Acre, were arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of being involved in the
murder of another youth, Kial Riad, last month.
Riad was shot dead outside of a grocery store in the village, and died of his injuries en route to hospital.
The suspects are also suspected of being involved in a number of robberies that occurred in the area in recent weeks.
