JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel intensified its crackdown on Jewish extremists Sunday, jailing two high-profile radicals for six months without charge and arresting additional suspects in West Bank settlement outposts, Israeli security authorities said.
The crackdown comes after a deadly July 31 firebomb attack on a Palestinian home in the West Bank that killed an 18-month-old boy and severely wounded his parents and brother. The boy's father died of his wounds Saturday.
