TEL AVIV, Israel – Israeli police say they have arrested Jewish suspects who appeared in a video of a wedding at which guests can be seen celebrating an arson attack that killed a Palestinian toddler.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says the groom and three wedding guests were arrested Tuesday. Samri says they are suspected of incitement and unlawful weapon possession.
The video, aired by Channel 10 last week, shows a rowdy crowd of skullcap-wearing youths brandishing rifles and dancing to music with lyrics calling for revenge. Some appear to be stabbing photos of Ali Dawabshe, who died when suspected Jewish extremists firebombed his family home in the West Bank in July.
The groom told Channel 10 he did not see his guests defiling photographs of Dawabsheh.
