8 settlers suspected of involvement in Huwara pogrom released

Eight of the settlers arrested on suspicion of involvement in the pogrom in Huwara were released under certain restrictions on Thursday after the Jerusalem District Court accepted an appeal filed by the right-wing Honenu legal organization.

Two of the suspects were soon rearrested under an administrative detention order. According to a security source, the two were among the leaders and organizers of the riot and posed a risk for further violence if released.
