Police have increased neighborhood patrols in the vicinity of Supreme Court Justice Ayala Procaccia's home after the judge returned home on Wednesday evening to discover a number of signs reading "Death to the Judge", "Traitor", and "Criminal." Police suspect that a number of teenaged settlers from Hebron, who demonstrated outside of Procaccia's home earlier Wednesday, were responsible for the signs, Army Radio reported. The girls were protesting against the judge's ruling to release from police custody one of their cohorts, a 15-year-old girl accused of rioting on the roof of a building in the Hebron marketplace two weeks ago, under restricted conditions. Meanwhile, police have requested to extend the remand of another teenager suspected of involvement in the Hebron unrest until the requisite legal processes are complete, arguing that releasing the girl would complicate the investigation. Another three right-wing teenagers are still in jail as a result of their refusal to acknowledge the court's prerogative and sign bail papers.
