The Bat Ayin settlement late Sunday night released a statement following the arrest of three Bat Ayin youths in connection to a firebombing of a car-full of Palestinians earlier this month, condemning all acts of violence against what it termed innocents.

The statement denied, however, any connection between the settlement and the attack that injured a Palestinian family. "We are certain that none of our residents had a hand in this grave incident, which goes against all human and Jewish values."
