The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the police arrested a Jewish settler from Yitzhar before dawn on Tuesday, according to the pro-settler news agency Tazpit.

There is no word yet as to the reason for the arrest. The suspect, who was described as a young man in his 20s and the married father of one child, will be brought before the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court for a hearing on his extended detention.

Yitzhar is considered one of the more ideologically extreme settlements in the West Bank, with a number of its residents suspected of taking part in so-called "price tag" incidents of vandalism against Palestinians.
