Soldier accused of inciting 'price tag' attacks
IDF soldier spreads incitement material on military base calling for formation of group to carry out 'price tag' attacks as revenge for murder of Havat Gilad resident Raziel Shevah in terror attack; soldier handed out pamphlets calling to 'restore national pride, take revenge for spilling holy blood of Shevah.'

An IDF soldier was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of distributing pamphlets calling for revenge for last week's terror attack that claimed the life of Havat Gilad resident Raziel Shevah.

 

 

The pamphlets were found on the soldier's base and Military Police have opened an investigation.

The pamphlets sought to recruit a likeminded group to "restore national pride" and carry out 'price tag' attacks in response to the murder near Havat Gilad. "Revenge for the spilling of the holy blood of Rabbi Raziel Shevah," the pamphlets said.

 

A military spokesman said the "IDF considers this a grave matter and condemns any act of violence and incitement of this kind. Any such act will be treated with seriousness and the Military Police will take appropriate measures."

The search for those involved in the killing of Raziel Shevah is still ongoing and is being led by army intelligence and the Shin Bet. Border Police and Golani Brigade forces have set up checkpoints in the area intended to disrupt the terrorists and limit their movements.

 

Sources from within the security establishment have voiced concern that since the perpetrators are clearly armed, a firefight may ensue when forces arrive to apprehend them, or that they may attempt to carry out another attack before they are caught.
