Police arrested on Friday three settlers from Yitzhar on suspicion of setting fire to three cars belonging to Palestinians from the village of Inabus, near the West Bank city of Nablus.

Flammable materials were found in the suspects' possession.

A Palestinian resident of the village reported the incidents to police on Friday morning, and said he had evidence implicating residents of the nearby settlement.

The complainant told police that the suspects set fire to three cars and a tractor, and then drove off in the direction of the settlement. He said he chased the suspects to the entrance of Yitzhar, and from there they managed to evade him.

Police sources said that after they conducted a search at the settlement, they found a car that matches the complainant's description.

Anti-fence protest in Bil'in Palestinian demonstrators frustrated at the lack of international attention being directed towards the separation fence due to the World Cup soccer tournament staged a World Cup-themed protest in the West Bank village of Bil'in on Friday.

Protesters arrived decked out in World Cup garb while waving flags of countries whose teams are participating in the tournament.
