Judea and Samaria Police arrested five settlers and detained two more at the Gilad Farm outpost in the northern West Bank on Tuesday after the group had failed to answer a police request to appear for questioning.
Police sought to question the settlers over past public disorder offenses. During the arrest, a small quantity of cannabis was discovered on one of the settlers, police said.
All seven were released on Tuesday.
