Right wing activists Monday called on the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court to free the four hikers who have been held on suspicion that they were involved in a shooting incident in which a 17-year-old Palestinian was killed last Friday near the West Bank village of Beit Ommar. Palestinians allege that hikers shot at the edge of their village.

Settlers and the activists claim that the hikers, who were part of a larger group which holds regular walks in the Judea and Samaria hills, acted in self defense after Palestinians threw rocks at them that Friday morning. The activists have asked the public to join them on Wednesday morning in the Russian Compound when the court plans to hold a hearing regarding the four hikers
