Five Jewish minors spent the night in police cells after a scuffle
with Arabs broke out near the Shechem Gate during the traditional
Flagdance march (Rikudgalim).
When the procession reached the Shechem Gate, Arabs began throwing
various objects at the marchers. Some of the Jewish youths responded
and a scuffle broke out. Police arrested five Jewish youths and an
unknown number of Arabs.
According to Honenu, the NGO that assists Jews suspected of
nationalist crimes, the Jewish youths were taken to the Russian
Compound. One of them, aged 14, had to call his parents to come from
Dimona at 2 a.m. in order to bail him out, Honenu said, when police
could have released him based on the signature of his brother, who is
26 and lives in Jerusalem.
Police deny the accusation and say that the brother refused to sign
the bail form and insisted that the parents be called.
Honenu insists that police could have released all five minors by
Sunday afternoon instead of locking them up overnight. They added
that all Jews and Arabs arrested for the Jerusalem Day altercation
have been freed on bail and that charge sheets will be filed soon.
