JERUSALEM (JTA) — Four Palestinians suspected of setting fire to buildings at a West Bank Jewish outpost were released from Israeli custody without charges.

Six people suffered smoke inhalation and a mobile home was completely burned down last Sunday, on Rosh Hashanah, at the Gilad Farm outpost near Nablus. Two other structures at the outpost were also damaged.

The men were released Wednesday.
