The police have arrested a 20-year-old soldier suspected of raping and sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl in the synagogue of the West Bank settlement of Beitar Illit last Friday. The police suspect that the soldier had previously attacked the girl on at least two occasions.
During interrogation the soldier denied the allegations. Jerusalem Magistrate's Court extended his custody and remanded him for an additional five days. (Noam "Dabul" Dvir)
