An Arab resident of the Bedouin town of Kuseifa was arrested Wednesday afternoon on charges of incitement to violence.
Kuseifa is a 10-minute drive west of the Negev city of Arad along Highway 31, just past the ancient Biblical city of Arad, where tourists can view the archaeological excavation of Tel Arad.
The 20-year-old, an employee at a factory at the Dead Sea in southern Israel, was taken into custody by police in the area, according to the Walla! website.
“The intifada has started, and I am sure that afterwards there will not be one Jewish pig here,” the worker reportedly wrote on his Facebook page.
He was taken for questioning by police to the precinct in Arad.
Kuseifa is comprised of Bedouin and Palestinian Arabs who have intermarried together, most of whom originate from the Hebron area.
