Five more settlers suspected of rioting were arrested later on. One of the detainees is Elhanan Gruner, a reporter in the extreme right-wing website "Jewish Voice."

 

The website claimed that police forces confiscated two cameras and a computer.

 

"This is not the first time Shai District Police officers destroy incriminating evidence. This is a silencing attempt to prevent the distribution of what really went on during the evacuation," the a member of the site said.

 

However, a police official rejected the claims. "The reporter was arrested for alleged involvement in the torching of a police vehicle. The cameraman's equipment was seized for investigation purposes only and not as claimed. The suspect's belongings will be returned after the inquiry is completed."

 

The movement for the construction of Judea and Samaria said in response: "We will not be discourage by violent demolition attempts. We are determined to keep building the land."
