Remand of Giv'at Sneh Ya'akov Brothers Extended 2 Days


The remand of two brothers who were arrested on Shabbat in the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish hilltop community of Sneh Ya'akov was extended, Sunday, until Tuesday, according to the Honenu legal-aid organization. The two are being held on suspicion of attacking a police officer and injuring Arabs during a clash that broke out after the Arabs, from the nearby Palestinian Authority village of Burin, set fire to a vineyard owned by a Sneh Ya'akov resident next to the adjacent Jewish community of Bracha.

Honenu said, "We are drawing a pattern of police activity in which every Arab attack ends in the arrest of Jews."
