Police Deny Violence in Albert Arrest

The Samaria (Shomron)-Judea Police issued a statement, Friday, in response to coverage of the Thursday-evening arrest of Boaz Albert of the Samarian Jewish community of Yitzhar, in which stun guns were used. The statement cited Albert for violating a restraining order against his being in Judea and Samaria for the third time.

The statement said a video showing the use of the stun guns was "edited in a tendentious way." It concluded, "Even if we ignore the editing, it can be seen that the police are acting decisively without any violence and according to procedures."
