Administrative Detention Approved for IS Supporters


A meeting of the Security Cabinet, convened to provide a response to Sunday’s truck-ramming terror attack, approved administrative detention for persons identifying with Islamic State, as did the perpetrator of Sunday’s attack.

The Security Cabinet also decided to destroy the home of the terrorist as soon as possible, reject family-reunification requests his family had filed for relatives in Gaza and Yehuda and Shomron, and not to hand over the terrorist’s body to his family for burial.

In addition, Netanyahu directed the security forces to investigate reports that some people at the scene of the attack had praised it, and if so, and they could be identified, to bring them to justice.
