Police free two settlers under investigation for shooting two Palestinians

Police on Wednesday night freed two members of the Itamar settlement’s security team, who are under investigation for shooting and wounding two Palestinians earlier this month.

Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said that the two men are still under investigation. Their weapons have been confiscated and they are banned from fully participating in the security team, he said.

The nongovernmental group Honenu had defended the two men and, together with attorney Adi Kedar, had secured their freedom only after appealing the arrest to the High Court of Justice on Wednesday.
