Soldier Suspected of Leaking Info to Settlers

An Israeli soldier has been arrested on suspicion that he leaked information on military operations in the West Bank to settlers.

Though no specific charges have yet been made, it is suspected that his actions allowed extremist settlers to disrupt Israel Defense Forces operations and carry out “price-tag” attacks.

The soldier, a resident of the West Bank who is a married father of two, serves in the Samaria Brigade’s rabbinate as a kashrut supervisor and is not believed to belong to any extremist groups, according to reports.

Israeli extremists last month vandalized and IDF base in the region, reportedly in retaliation for the razing of three homes in the West Bank’s Migron outpost.

IDF investigators questioned the soldier Monday, and when he refused to cooperate arrested him, according to reports.
