Yitzhar Saga: Lawyer Claims Police Nabbed Wrong Guy


The sixteen-year-old boy arrested for allegedly throwing rocks at police officers in the Samarian community of Yitzhar was brought before the Jerusalem judicial system this afternoon (Wednesday).

Adi Keidar, the lawyer representing the youth on behalf of the ‘Honenu’ organization, told Arutz Sheva that, “The minor was arrested during the night or having thrown rocks at security forces. The suspect has denied all allegations surrounding the events.”

The lawyer further stated that the knife on the youth’s person was to be used to prepare food.

The youth’s attorney has additionally stated that it seems as if the police nabbed the wrong person.
