Bail for Seven of 13 Who Allegedly Attacked Palestinian Refugee Camp

A Jerusalem magistrate’s court released on bail Friday seven of the 13 West Bank settlers alleged to have participated in an armed attack on the Daheisha refugee camp during the night of June 6.

The seven had been charged with stone-throwing and illegal demonstration. The six remaining in custody are charged with rioting, firing weapons into an inhabited area and causing extensive damage. They are under the jurisdiction of a Jerusalem district court, where Judge Tzvi Cohen remanded them in custody until Tuesday. The State Attorney had requested that they be held until legal proceedings against them are completed. He will renew his arguments when the remand expires.
