Police Detain 4 Relatives of Be'er Sheva Victim

Four relatives of Omar Walid, the Bedouin man who was critically wounded in the shooting incident at the Bank Hapoalim branch in Be’er Sheva, were detained for questioning by police on Thursday night, after they attacked investigators who came to collect Walid’s testimony.

Walid, who woke up at the Soroka Hospital on Thursday, has claimed that he was hit by police bullets and not by bullets fired by Itamar Alon, the man who committed the massacre at the bank. Police have rejected the claim.
