In Jerusalem an Israeli soldier was arrested Monday on the suspicion that he has leaked information about Israels' military operations in the West Bank to settlers.
No specific charges have been made, it's suspected that the soldier's actions enabled extremist settlers to disrupt the armies operations and carry out “price-tag” attacks.
Israeli military investigators questioned the soldier and upon his refusal to cooperate arrested him. The soldier resides in the West Bank, is a married and a father of two. He serves in the Samaria Brigade's rabbinate as a kashrut supervisor. He is not believed to belong to any extremist groups.
Israeli extremists during the past month have vandalized an Israeli army base in the region reportedly in retaliation for the razing of three homes in the West Bank's Migron outpost.
