A Jerusalem teen was arrested Sunday on suspicion of involvement in the torching of a mosque
near Ramallah two months ago.
The suspect was detained while on vacation at the Kinneret
Lake. In June, unknown assailants torched the Jaba village mosque and left graffiti messages which read "Ulpana
war" and "price tag"
shortly before Beit El's Ulpana neighborhood was evacuated.

Last month, two other teens were arrested in connection with the case but were released for lack of evidence.
Some two months ago, Shin Bet chief Yoram Cohen addressed the phenomenon. "The torching of mosques by Jewish youngsters causes Israel great
damage both in the political and the security level. It's immeasurable damage," he said.
