Police Have Not Opened Probe on Leftists' Attack


Hevron police have not opened an investigation nor has a complaint been filed by Border Police against masked leftists who caused extensive damage to the separation barrier Saturday, according to Voice of Israel government radio.

They cut open a wide hole in the barrier under construction west of Hevron and towards Kiryat Gat, and caused heavy damage to electronic instruments and cameras. Similar attacks have taken place at the barrier in Gush Etzion. Maximum punishment for the vandalism is 15 years in prison, but no one has been arrested.
