The four detainees from Wednesday’s protest in front of the Knesset in Jerusalem have been unconditionally released at the police station, Honenu reports.

Following a Knesset vote on the “Regulation Law” intended to prevent the evacuation of the Ulpana Neighborhood in Beit El, Ulpana residents and others supporting the law broke up in angry protest.

During the protest MK Michael Ben-Ari of the National Union party reported to Honenu that his parliamentary aide, right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir, had been detained (not arrested, as previously reported) for objecting to the use of mounted police, whom he said endangered the lives of the protesters.

Two minors, one suspected of cursing a policeman and the other of pushing a policeman, were also detained. An additional adult was detained on suspicion of disturbing a policeman in the line of duty.

After several hours of interrogation at the Moriah Police Station, the four detainees were unconditionally released at the station.

Honenu attorney Adi Kedar handled the case.

MK Ben-Ari, whose faction’s proposed bill had just been defeated by a 3-1 margin, was offering carrots to all the “bunnies” among the coalition ministers, who promised their support to the bill but, under threat of dismissal from Netanyahu’s government, remained absent during the vote.

The bunny, or “shafan” in Hebrew, is the paradigm of cowardice in Israeli culture.
