Jewish suspect arrested over fatal stabbing of Palestinian during brawl
A Jewish Israeli man has been arrested over the fatal stabbing of a Palestinian man during a brawl with Israeli settlers near Salfit yesterday, according to Hebrew-language media reports.
The suspect is being prevented from meeting with a lawyer, according to the Ynet news site.
It is not immediately clear if he is suspected of carrying out the stabbing itself, Channel 12 news says.
Local Palestinians say Ali Hassan Harb, 27, was stabbed to death by a settler on his land after a group of Israelis arrived to look into building an illegal outpost in the area.
Initial reports by Israeli settlers described a mass assault by 40 Palestinians wielding stones and clubs.
