Violent protests over Sandak’s death have been ongoing in recent weeks.
The protesters are demanding that a special investigation unit be formed to look into the circumstances surrounding Sandak’s death – and that the unit that probes nationalistic crime in the West Bank be closed, Haaretz reported.
On Thursday, a resident of Yizhar was suspected of coming to the house of a police officer to harass him, Ynet reported.
Investigations revealed that the officer had no connection to Sandak's death, but his name and surname are the same as the name of the police officer who participated in the arrest in which he was killed.
