Shin Bet arrests second far right figure

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) arrested a second far right figure on Tuesday, a day after arresting far right operative Meir Ettinger on suspicion of being involved in an extremist Jewish organization.

The latest arrest was of Avitar Salonim, who has had a banning order preventing him from traveling to the West Bank and Jerusalem, the Shin Bet said.

Salonim too is suspected of being active in a "violent extremist Jewish organization," the intelligence agency said.
