Police in Beit Shemesh arrested a 28-year-old area resident affiliated with the sikrikim for allegedly attacking a chareidi soldier who serves in Nachal Chareidi. The suspect, W, is known as being active among the area’s sikrikim.
W is not cooperating with police who are requesting to hold him without bail. The police representative told the court that when dealing with W, one may not look at this as an isolated incident against an individual but as a worrisome trend against serving in the IDF.
Justice Ilta Ziskind released W on bail and ordered him to distance himself from the soldier.
