The Supreme Court ruled on Sunday to uphold the release to house arrest of five pro-settlement activists indicted for gathering military information regarding government-ordered demolitions of unauthorized West Bank outposts. 

The state had appealed against a Jerusalem District Court ruling last week to release the men to full house arrest, arguing that the five should be remanded in custody throughout the legal proceedings against them.

The five men, David Tzvi Eliyahu, 17; Meir Etinger, 18; Akiva Pinchas Hacohen, 27; Ephraim Moshe Chaykin, 18; and Elad Meir, 36, were indicted in the Jerusalem District Court last week on a string of charges, including gathering military intelligence, conspiracy to riot, conspiracy to enter a military base, and conspiracy to obstruct a public servant.
