Police arrested three Palestinians for allegedly poisoning a family in Ra'anana for nationalistic reasons, it was revealed Sunday after the Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court lifted a media blackout on the case.

According to Israeli media, 46-year-old Otman Nas'ara from the village of Beit Furik near Nablus confessed to poisoning the family. The two additional suspects denied involvement in the crime.

The suspects allegedly put poison in a beverage at the family's home some ten months ago. The father of the family suffered serious injuries and was hospitalized for a week. A two-year-old child suffered moderate injuries, and the mother and grandmother were lightly injured.

A police officer who arrived on the scene to investigate the incident also drank from the tainted beverage, suffering light injuries.
