Israel Frees Three Turks Arrested on Suspicion of Assaulting Police Officer


An Israeli court on Saturday freed without charge three Turks who had been arrested on suspicion of assaulting police outside a Jerusalem holy site contested by Jews and Muslims, a police spokesman said.

The men – described by police as tourists – were taken into custody on Friday, as Israel confronted a weekly surge in protests against US President Donald Trump’s Dec. 6 recognition of Yerushalayim as its capital.
