Israel detains third far-right Jewish Israeli suspected of extremist ties
- Israeli police have placed the three men in “administrative detention” for six months, allowing them to be held without charge.
- Police have accused the men of being involved in terror attacks, although no evidence has been presented for formal charging.
- The arrests follow the recent arson attack by Ultra-Orthodox Jewish extremists against a Palestinian family’s home in the West Bank that left a toddler and his father dead.
“Right now there are three detentions. In the coming days it could be 30, and we could end up with 300. … These orders endanger the entire justice system.”
