Police have arrested a 22-year-old Bnei Brak resident in connection with an arson and vandalism attack on the Latrun monastery last September that drew international condemnation.
The monastery door was set alight and the names of West Bank outposts were spray-painted on the walls along with the epithet “Jesus is a monkey.” The incident was labeled a “price tag” attack in response to the evacuation last summer of Migron, a West Bank outpost.
Bnei Brak, a densely populated city of 178,000 near Tel Aviv, has a mostly Haredi Orthodox population.
An administrative restraining order was issued against the suspect from Bnei Brak, preventing him from traveling to the West Bank.
