The Judea and Samaria police on Tuesday morning detained for questioning five residents of Esh Kodesh, for their suspected role in a number of violent incidents recently between residents of the outpost and the nearby Palestinian village of Kusra.

The men were detained following an undercover operation by the YAMAR investigative branch in the district, police said.

All those arrested are in their twenties and are men. Only one of them is a soldier, and serves in the IDF's Military Rabbinate, police said.

During the raids Tuesday, which were carried out by YASSAM special patrol officers along with YAMAR detectives, police confiscated a number of rifles and pistols belonging to residents of the outpost.

On Tuesday the men were expected to be released on bond.
