Yitzhar Leader Detained for Insulting Shabak Leader

A resident of the Tekumah neighborhood in the Samarian Jewish community of Yitzhar was detained by police detectives, Tuesday morning, after he used a derogatory term to describe the coordinator of the Shabak Israel Security Agency as the agency was issuing administrative orders exiling 12 Yitzhar-area residents.

The Honenu legal-aid organization reports that the man, a member of the Yitzhar secretariat, was interrogated at the Ariel police station on suspicion of insulting a public servant and released without any restriction.
