Five right-wing activists who were arrested Wednesday in Jerusalem will be kept in custody until at least Friday so police can continue the investigation, the Jerusalem Magistrates Court ruled on Thursday morning.

Six young men were arrested in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood of Jerusalem in connection to spate of price tag attacks around Jerusalem and the West Bank on Wednesday. The sixth man was transferred to the Judea and Samaria police district, where he is wanted in connection with other price tag attacks.

On Wednesday, the police were met by dozens of angry religious demonstrators outside the apartment where they arrested the six men, and right-wing leaders, including Itamar Ben Gvir and Baruch Marzel, have denounced the police for illegally searching the apartment without proper authorization.
