The police on Tuesday arrested an Arab in the village of Kafr Manda in northern Israel after they located 110 ready-for-use firebombs in an open field near the village.

The man, 46 with Israeli citizenship, was brought before a judge in the Akko court and his remand was extended.

The arrest follows a similar incident on Monday in which the police exposed two pipe bombs. A sapper dismantled the bombs. The police said they know the identities of the bomb builders.

The police stated that it “will continue to work to locate weapons and expose the criminals until they are brought to justice, with the aim of changing the reality in order to remove the criminal activity from the daily life of normative citizens and increase public safety.”

The village was rocked by severe violence earlier this year after a segment of the residents expressed displeasure with the outcome of the election for the local municipality.
