Samaria district police on Sunday arrested a 17-year-old suspected in an arson attack against a mosque in Kfar Jaba near Ramallah in the West Bank some two months ago.

Police arrested the youth, who lives in the Binyamin region of the West Bank, at one of the beaches of Lake Kinneret, where he was vacationing with his family.

Last month, police arrested two other youths suspected of involvement in the mosque arson, but released them due to lack of evidence.
