The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) arrested three Jewish youth in the West Bank on Thursday who may be linked to the arson of a Beduin tent in the early morning hours. The three were arrested near the Kochav Hashahar settlement and police also seized a vehicle belonging to one of the suspects. 

The three suspects were taken for questioning at a Shin Bet facility in Petah Tikva. An order was issued prohibiting the suspects from meeting with legal counsel. 

Earlier in the morning, four youth were arrested in the same area and they are expected to be released soon. 

The organization “Honenu”, which provides legal assistance to Jews accused of illegal right wing activism, protested the order prohibiting the suspects to meet with counsel and said it seriously harmed the suspects' rights.
