A day after the parents of murder suspects Naor and Adi Sodmi left their hometown of Bnei Ayish to avoid having to confront the wrath of local residents, unidentified persons attempted to set their house on fire. The twin brothers are suspected of choking a seven-year-old boy to death last week. The arsonists apparently set a flammable material alight in the house's yard and fled the scene. One of the neighbors managed to extinguish the blaze before firefighters arrived. The house sustained light damage in the incident, and police launched an investigation.
