Two more buses torched in Israel

Two more buses torched in Israel

Two buses were burned down in an open parking lot near Tel Aviv, more than a week after over a dozen buses were torched in a similar incident that Israeli police suspect was part of a protection racket.

According to a report published by the English-language Jerusalem Post daily newspaper, the arson attack took place in Rishon Lezion city, eight kilometers south of Tel Aviv, in the early hours of Sunday. No casualties were reported.

On June 11, 18 buses all belonging to a transportation company were destroyed when they were torched in the early hours of the day in the city of Safed, Press TV wrote.

A number of other vehicles were damaged at a central bus station. 

Witnesses told local media that they were woken by the sound of explosions and panicked that it was a rocket attack.

A similar incident also happened in Kiryat Shmona town last month.

There has been a surge in activity linked to organized crime across the Israeli-occupied territories in recent years.

Spiraling levels of crime and violence against the Palestinian communities as well as the Israeli police’s inaction in the face of the violence have outraged Arab citizens of Israel, prompting tens of thousands of them to stage mass demonstrations.

Last October, hundreds of Palestinians held a mass demonstration in the Israeli-occupied territories to express their deep resentment over rising levels of misdeed and violence in their communities and the Israeli police’s collaboration with criminal gangs.
