Two more 'Israeli Arabs' arrested and charged with arson

Two more 'Israeli Arabs' have been arrested and charged with arson in responses to what was apparently a coordinated effort to set additional fires while fire fighters were responding to the massive Carmel forest fire outside of Haifa last week.
Two Israeli-Arab teenagers were arrested for attempting to spread the Carmel fire as the fire still raged, police revealed Wednesday. The two, residents of Nazareth ages 14 and 15, are accused of setting fires in the Ilut forest.

The two young arsonists set a fire in Ilut on Friday, then fled from the scene. The fire caused significant damage, and forced firefighters to abandon their efforts fighting the Carmel fire in order to battle the blaze in Ilut.

The two were arrested on Monday. They were taken to court Wednesday for an extension of their remand.

Several smaller fires broke out as rescue workers battled the Carmel fire, and police suspect a coordinated arson effort. Fires were reported near Basmat Tivon, Usafiya, and the northern border.
