Ex-Soldier Accused of Planting Bombs Aimed at Israeli Arabs

A 22-year-old Israeli man has been arrested on suspicion of planting nine bombs directed against Arab citizens in northern Israel over the last three years, the police said Thursday. Eliran Golan, a former soldier, has been cooperating with the police since his arrest on Wednesday, and his motive for the attacks was a “hatred of Arabs,” according to Yaacov Borovsky, the police chief in charge of the northern city of Haifa, where Mr. Golan lives. Mr. Golan’s father, Meir, described as a civilian employee of the Israel Defense Forces, has also been arrested, but he insisted that he had not been aware of his son’s activities, the police said. The two live together, the police added. Six of the bombs were uncovered before they went off, but the others exploded, slightly wounding three Israeli Arabs. The bombs were placed under cars and at mosques, the police said. Full Story
