Police from the Nationalist Crimes Unit released a West Bank settler from custody on Sunday, after he was questioned for reportedly violating his house arrest.

The man in question, David Hesdai, is a resident of the settlement of Beit El who was put on house arrest in June on the orders of the IDF.

Police said that he was released back to the settlement on Sunday, and police will decide how to pursue the case further.
