Settlers prevent arrest of right-wing activist

Settlers in the Tal Menashe community in Samaria prevented police from arresting a 29-year-old woman living in the community who was suspected of public disorder and assaulting police. Some 70 settlers arrived on the scene to meet the three police officers who came to arrest the right-wing activist. In order to prevent "the deterioration of events," police said, the cops decided to delay making the arrest. Police saw the settlers' actions as "serious" and "a disturbance to law enforcement," and emphasized that the arrest, which was mandated by a court order, would take place in any case at a time deemed appropriate by police.
