The Jerusalem Juvenile Magistrates Court extended, Sunday evening, the remand of two youths who are suspected of intentionally using a key and a screwdriver to damage eight Arab vehicles and throwing objects in a life-threatening way at other vehicles next to the Tomb of Shim'on Hatzaddik in Jerusalem. One of the minors was ordered held until Monday while the other will remain in detention until Wednesday despite a police request to detain both of them ten days. The two were reportedly cooperating with investigators as their interrogation continued.
Relatives complained that one of the boys was denied access to an attorney and forced to sleep in a chair. Another complaint was that one of the boys was handcuffed in a public place despite being a minor, in violation of the law. Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir of the Honenu legal-aid organization said the boys should have been released to house arrest. He added, "If it were the opposite case, in which an Arab scratched Jewish cars, the police would not arrest the minors, even for a day."
