More Time Sought for Girls in Military 'Price Tag' Case


A remand hearing started, Sunday afternoon, for seven girls arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of taking part in vandalism, a few weeks ago at the Binyamin regional brigade headquarters in Beit El. The charges facing the girls are destruction of military equipment, unlawful behavior and intefering with an Israel Defense Forces unit.

Police sought to increase the remand of two of the girls by 10 days and the other girls by five days. The crime is associated with the "price tag" movement, named for the Hebrew words "Tag Mechir" at scenes were vandalism has been known to take place after incidents involving Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
