IDF soldier arrested on suspicion of Holon stairwell arson

A 20-year-old IDF soldier from Holon has been arrested on suspicion of setting fire to the stairwells of eight apartment buildings in the city, police said Friday morning.
The soldier told his commander that he was the culprit in Thursday’s arson and the commander then told police.
However, when questioned by police, the soldier denied his involvement, saying his admission to his commander was an April Fools’ Day joke.
