Earlier, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) said that the results of an investigation into Thursday’s fire in the northern town of Zichron Ya’akov concluded that the blaze was caused by arsonists.

Police reported that in total 12 individuals have been investigated for arson and incitement. Erdan added later that the number had since increased beyond 13.
