Four Jewish militants were arrested Thursday after a night long rampage through the West Bank Arab towns of Ramallah and El-Bireh in which the windows of at least 150 parked cars and many homes were smashed with hammers and rocks. No injuries were reported, but about 30 Ramallah residents have filed complaints with the local police. The militants are believed to be members of West Bank settlements who were retaliation for attacks on two Israeli buses in the Ramallah area earlier this week with rocks and, reportedly in one case, a hand grenade.
