morning of Monday, September 12 during a police raid in Nahaliel have been released, some of them after being brought to court. One minor was released the same day after being interrogated on suspicion of assaulting policemen Two other minors detained on suspicion of destroying agricultural equipment during a trip two months previously were taken to a court deliberation and released to seven days of house arrest, despite a demand by police representatives to extend their remand by five days. Honenu Attorneys David HaLevi and Sinaiya Moses-Harizi represented the minors in court. The minor who was evacuated to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center with facial injuries was interrogated in the evening on suspicion of assaulting policemen. After interrogation he was released to five days of house arrest. The police demanded 1,000 NIS bail as a condition for release. On the morning of Tuesday, September 13, Honenu filed an urgent appeal on the decision. Honenu Attorney Avichai Hajbi, who represented the minor, asserted in the appeal that the minor himself had been assaulted and that because he had not carried out any violation, there is no cause to restrict his freedom or to demand bail.
