Jewish extremist Meir Ettinger freed without charges after 10 months in jail

Police in Israel released from prison the Jewish extremist Meir Ettinger, who had been jailed for 10 months on suspicion that he belonged to a terrorist group targeting Palestinians and Christians.
Ettinger, 24, who is the grandson of the late ultra-nationalist politician Meir Kahane, was released on Wednesday with restrictions, including a night-time curfew, a 6-month ban on entering the West Bank and Jerusalem and on engaging in any sort of contact with 92 other far-right activists, Army Radio reported.
At the time of his arrest, police said Ettinger was the leader of a Jewish underground cell whose goal is to topple Israel’s democracy and carry out attacks against non-Jews. But he has not been charged with a crime.
