Police confirmed Sunday morning that an inquiry has been opened against extreme left-wing activists who provided to Palestinian authorities the names of Palestinians accused of selling land to Jews.
The evidence first surfaced on a Channel 2 investigative journalism show broadcast last week.
Police have not yet provided further information regarding the nature of the investigation.
From the preliminary probe, it is clear that the left-wing activists were fully aware that the Palestinians who they accused would likely be subject to torture and or capital punishment.
In spite of the knowledge of the severity of punishment for these crimes, Israeli extremist Ezra Nawi and others exposed the Palestinians, and subjected them to this fate.
