During a discussion at the Knesset’s Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee on law enforcement in the occupied territories, Commander Haim Rahamim, head of the investigations and intelligence wing of the Judea and Samaria Police District in the West Bank, said that 228 incidents of attacks against security forces by right-wing activists were recorded in the past year in the West Bank – not including verbal threats – and that dozens of mosques were torched.  65 indictments were served against right-wing activists for assault and vandalism, and 10 people were arrested for mosque torching, but they were released without an indictment beings served.  According to Rahamim, the police “has a problem with gathering evidence due to the locations where the crimes are committed.”

Right-wing activists smashed windshields of police officers’ cars, who came to a Jerusalem apartment where other right-wing activists, expelled from Yizhar, were staying. The activists were wanted for investigation. According to some activists, police used excessive violence upon entering the apartment. Police found documents in the apartment, and a box of fake weapons. According to activists, the police even threw them out the windows of the apartment, injuring three of them.
