Israel Releases At Least 9 Jewish Suspects in Firebombing of Palestinian Home

Israel has released at least nine West Bank Jews who were arrested as part of the investigation into the firebombing of a Palestinian home that left a baby and his father dead.

At least nine people were arrested Sunday in raids on two West Bank outposts; the details on the raids are under a gag order.

“All those arrested yesterday for interrogation have been released,” a spokeswoman for Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security agency told AFP, with no elaboration, the news service reported Mond
