Two suspects, one of them an Israeli soldier, were arrested overnight Monday as part of an investigation into Jewish terrorism.

The details of the investigation are under a court gag order.

The soldier was arrested by Military Police at his base. The other suspect is a minor who was previously arrested on a similar offence.

A statement issued by Honenu, a right-wing non-profit group that provides legal aid, said that the two were being denied access to a lawyer, and added that the case does not warrant such a measure.

Three other suspects in the case were arrested in the past week by the Shin Bet and the Judea and Samaria police.
