      10 Days Later, Detained Shomron Man Sees Lawyer

      After 10 days under arrest, a 25-year-old father of three from the Shomron (Samaria) community of Havat Gilad has finally been allowed to see a lawyer.

      Yehuda Landsberg was arrested by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and was denied any contact with his family. He has finally been allowed to meet with attorney Adi Keidar of the Honenu legal aid organization. Earlier reports said he had begun a hunger strike, a tactic that has been used by Arab terrorists to successfully secure their release in the past.
