A 50-year-old Israeli Arab was arrested on Saturday over suspicion of abducting and imprisoning two Palestinian minors.
Israeli police released a statement saying the 14-year-old boys called the police hotline reporting that they had been kidnapped and held against their will for three days without food or water.
The boys, both without a permit to stay or work in Israel, had apparently managed to obtain the kidnapper's cell phone.
Police arrived at the scene in the central Israeli city of Lod and arrested the suspect, and freed the minors with the help of fire and rescue services.
The kidnapper, who is known to police, is suspected of attempting to use them for labor but police are still unaware of clear a motive for the kidnapping.
The police will likely file a request with the court to extend the arrest of the man.
