There are a number of Australian Jewish extremists living as settlers in the occupied West Bank who are constantly terrorizing the Palestinian population.
There are hundreds of Palestinians in Israeli jails detained without trial for months and years, a measure known as “administrative detention”.
It is believed, for the first time, Jews who have been detained under the provisions of administrative detention suspected of involvement in the fire bombing in Duma, a West Bank village. Four members of the Dawabshe family died in the attack.
Recent reports in the press have highlighted the case of three members of the extremist group “The Revolt” who are under detention, a dual Australian-Israeli national Evyatar Slonim and two American-Israelis Mordechai Meyer, 18, and Meir Ettinger, 24.
Slonim was previously arrested on suspicion of setting fire to a home in the Palestinian town of Khirbet Abu Falah in November 2014.
