3 arrested for eating during Ramadan - in Nablus

Three people were arrested for breaking the Ramadan fast in Nablus on Saturday.

Palestine Press Agency reports that the three were caught "red-handed" as they were eating, drinking and smoking cigarettes behind a vegetable market downtown, after a concerned citizen reported them to police.

The director of the police warned against anyone violating the sanctity of Ramadan and warning that they would go to prison.

The report did not mention whether the detainees were Muslim or Christian.

We have yet to hear any complaints from so-called "progressives" about this.
