Two residents of Kasra, young men aged 21 and 26, were arrested last night on suspicion of attacking security guards at the Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya.

The incident began after a family member of the attackers was hospitalized due to a car accident. Around 30 family members arrived at the hospital and requested to visit him after visiting hours, but they were not allowed to enter. After being denied, the family members began to disrupt the order at the location and attacked the security guards. Following the event, police officers who were called to the scene arrested two residents of Kasra, who were taken for questioning at the Nahariya police station.

Depending on the course of the investigation, the police will decide whether to extend the suspects' detention at the Magistrate's Court in the Krayot.

Planted explosives and extorted victims through threats

Earlier this morning, it was reported that the son of a council head in the north, a 24-year-old man from the village of Rama, was arrested yesterday (Monday) on suspicion of being involved in incidents of violence, shooting, placing explosives in several houses, as well as extortion through threats against victims, as part of involvement with a criminal organization from the north.

According to the police, the suspect allegedly threatened and extorted several victims multiple times, as they owed money to his father. This is despite the investigation revealing that the debt had been arranged with members of the criminal organization.

The Magistrate's Court in Rishon LeZion will hold a hearing today regarding the extension of the suspect's detention.
