The three, ages 12-13 on, were arrested on Sunday. All three are residents of the Bat Ayin settlement in the West Bank.


Dozens of their friends were present in court for the hearing and interrupted the proceedings with shouts of "Be strong," and "We'll blow them apart."


The three seemed unfazed by the court's decision to remand them. Their attorneys said they will appeal the decision.


Attorneys Adi Kedar and David Halevy, said that the State's evidence against the three was "flimsy."


He also said that the police never corroborated the teens' version of the event.


"We have no faith in the police," Kedar said. "These are children from good homes, whose only sin is living in a community perceived as radical.


"The police are trying to appease the politicians and the media with these arrests," he said.
