Jerusalem police have arrested five Israeli far-right religious teens, including two minors, suspected of puncturing the tires of police vehicles and stoning Arab-owned cars in the city over the last couple months, police said Wednesday. The five, who were apprehended over the last 72 hours, were brought to a Jerusalem court Wednesday for a remand hearing. A search of their homes uncovered canisters of orange spray paint and makeshift knives, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. The five are also suspected of vandalizing the city's Sadigora Yeshiva, and physically assaulting the head of the yeshiva. Separately, 15 religious teens were apprehended in Jerusalem Tuesday night for stoning passing vehicles over the Purim holiday, police said.
