Two Israeli "Palestinian-Only" Buses Set on Fire

The controversial policy was launched on Sunday


Two Israeli buses that were part of a controversial "Palestinian-only" bus line launched earlier this week were torched on Monday night.

Agence France Presse reports that unknown arsonists set buses belonging to Israeli transportation company Afikim alight late Monday in the Arab village of Kfar Qassem.

"Two buses were apparently set on fire but we are looking into all possibilities," police spokeswoman Luba Samri told the news agency.
