Yesterday, the police arrested 4 suspects from Petah Tikva, 2 men and 2 women, who are suspected of threatening an Arab woman and her daughter in recent days due to their Arab origin. The goal of threatening them was to prompt them to leave their apartment in the city.

The arrest of the 4 suspects took place yesterday, after a tenant found the remains of thrown tear gas in their apartment. The remains of tear gas were found in the laundry room where the woman lives together with her daughter.

This morning, the suspects will be brought to the Petah Tikva Magistrate Court in order to discuss extending their detention.
