Father of freed Jewish detainee hails ‘justice’

The father of the Jewish detainee originally held in connection to the Duma firebombing and freed today hails the decision.

“We are happy that justice is coming to light,” he tells the Ynet news website. “My son is a good boy, honest and sensitive. He loves the land of Israel and nation of Israel and he was in the middle of enlisting to the army. He asked to give back to Israel, and unfortunately, they associated him with the [Duma] case, which we knew he was not connected to.”

The teenager is set to be indicted for an assault on an Arab two years ago.
