Arusi, who lives on a Shomron hilltop outpost, will be kept under house arrest in his parents' home for two weeks; the other two were released without restrictions. The police waged a well-publicized two-day manhunt for Maguri, at the conclusion of which they dramatically announced that the "fugitive Jewish underground soldier" had been found.
The police did, however, request the extension of the custody of several other suspects, including David Libman - who is currently imprisoned in the same Ashkelon prison as the terrorists who murdered his brother Shlomo five years ago. The presiding judge warned the General Security Service earlier this week that she would not extend their custody unless she saw some substantial evidence against them. Despite this, and despite the fact that the judge commented that the GSS had still not presented sufficient evidence, she agreed today to extend the custody of Libman and Yisachar Peretz for five days.
