3 Suspects in IDF Outpost Destruction to House Arrest


Three residents of the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Yitzhar, who were arrested on suspicion of destroying an adjacent Israel Defense Forces outpost this week, were released to house arrest on Friday. The remand of two others was extended to Monday.

Referring to the destruction of four homes in Yitzhar, which occured the same morning the outpost was destroyed, the Honenu legal-aid organization, which represented the suspects, said, "The series of decisions of the various courts have proven once again that the police rush to arrest innocent people just because of their place of residence, and to placate public pressure generated by the 'swelling' of recent events in Yitzhar."
