December 4, 2011 11:38

Police arrested six female residents of West Bank settlements on Sunday on suspicion of carrying out a string of nationalistic crimes against IDF forces and Palestinian property in recent weeks.

The suspects, five minors and a woman, are suspected of vandalizing IDF property, interfering with army forces, and cutting down hundreds of Palestinian-owned olive trees near the village of Kusra, in the Binyamin region of the West Bank, police said.

Police said they attributed the acts to the suspects "despite their [young] age."

The arrests came following a high priority investigation launched by the Lahav 433 elite police unit, together with the Judea and Samaria police district.
