Second Havat Maon Resident Arrested

Hevron-area police arrested a right-wing activist, Sunday, on suspicion of throwing rocks at leftist and Palestinian Authority agitators who went to the southern Hevron hills Jewish community of Havat Maon on Shabbat. He faces a hearing on Monday for extension of his remand.

Earlier on Sunday, the detention of another Havat Maon resident was extended until Tuesday, following his arrest following complaints of the leftists and Arabs that they were attacked when they went to Havat Maon. The Havat Maon resident was seen wearing a mask and carrying a club. While some among the leftists and Arabs were detained for questioning, none were arrested.
