IDF forces and the Israeli Police arrested four arsonists on Friday night.
Three of them were spotted by a Nature and Parks Authority inspector.
Security forces discovered two bottles of gas, gloves, lighters, and a back of cloth in their car.
A police spokesman has reported that 23 arson suspects have been arrested in the past several days, and over 30 have been interrogated.
Over the last five days, hundreds of fires have burned throughout israel. Often several fires erupted in different areas of the same city simultaneously. Hamas and other Arab groups have praised the fires, even announcing their prayer that “gasoline rain down from the sky.”
Though they were not willing to admit it at the beginning, Israeli officials have finally agreed that at least half of the fires were caused by arsonists. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu also said arsonists are terrorists, while MK Oren Hazan (Likud) has suggested life imprisonment for the arsonists, while MK Aryeh Deri (Shas) has announced he will strip arsonists of their citizenship.
