Soldiers Accused of Attacking Arab Freed but Face Trial

Four soldiers from the Lavi Battalion who were arrested on suspicion of attacking an eastern-Jerusalem Arab in the Judean Arab settlement of Halhoul, north of Hevron, were released to open arrest on their base, Sunday evening, according to the Honenu legal-aid organization.

Honenu said that military prosecutors intend to file an indictment even though the court based its release order on the weakness and flaws of the case.
