Israel Police Arrest Several Members of the Right-Wing Lehava Group
News agencies on Sunday quoted a police spokesperson, who said that a total of eight people had been taken into custody overnight.
“Eight suspects who belong to Lehava were arrested and detained for questioning on suspicion of offences involving incitement to carry out acts of violence and terror for racist motives,” spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement cited by the AFP news agency.
The Associated Press reported that four of the activists had since been released.
The suspects were arrested in raids across central and southern Israel, as well as the occupied West Bank, Samri said.
