Jewish Vigilantes Held Following Protest Against Murder


The court extended until Friday the remand of three minors suspected of causing acts of vengeance following the murder at the Tapuach junction on Tuesday. The three were suspected of endangering persons, disturbing public order and common assault. They were also suspected of pelting a bus with stones.

Another suspect was arrested on suspicion of assaulting police officers who engaged in arrest procedures. The suspect was released on a 1,500 shekel deposit.

Righteous indignation spilled over into protests and alleged acts of violence against PA residents following the stabbing murder of popular actor and father of five, Evyatar Borovsky of the Ar El theater group. The murder suspect was a member of a known Arab terrorist group and had been imprisoned and released previously for terrorist related activities.
