House Arrest for Suspect in Razing of IDF Yitzhar Post


The Jerusalem Magistrates Court ordered, Monday, the release to house arrest of a youth who was arrested in connection with the recent razing of an Israel Defense Forces outpost coinciding with the demolition of four homes in the adjacent Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Yitzhar. Police had sought extension of the youth's remand by five days.

The youth was identified from pictures as having been among those who took part in the incident, while he and others claimed to be in a group that went with food and drink to show support for soldiers afterwards. The Honenu legal-aid organization, which represented him, noted that the court had released all the suspects arrested by the police.
