A number of right-wing activists have been arrested on suspicion of planning an attack on Palestinians. The Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court has imposed a partial gag order on the details of the case, including the identity of the suspects.

Recently, a right-wing activist who is described as a “significant risk” has been freely moving around the West Bank for three weeks, after the restraining order against him expired and no new order has yet been issued.

Yosef Frisman, 22, has been described by the IDF as a person whose violent activities represents a serious danger, but it took the IDF two weeks after the previous restraining order expired to issue a new order; and another five days to deliver it after it was signed. During this period Frisman moved freely about the West Bank.

Anti-Arab activist Itamar Ben-Gvir and Eldan Danino, the lawyers for one of the new suspects, said the Shin Bet security service “is investing all its efforts in chasing after Jewish youths instead of dealing with Arab terror. The feeling is that our client’s rights are being harmed by investigators and the way the Jewish youths suspected of nationalist offenses are being handled is excessive,” they said.
