Report: Israel to provide secure transport for settlers

June 17, 2014 11:11 P.M. (Updated: June 19, 2014 12:17 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlements in the West Bank have considered temporary solutions to prevent more kidnapping incidents, Israel's Maariv newspaper reported Tuesday.

They have asked settlers not to hitchhike on main roads, and to stay inside the settlements waiting for a ride if public transportation were available.

Many settlers still hitchhike on main roads in the West Bank after the kidnapping of three teenagers last week, which increases chances of attacks by Palestinians posing as settlers, Maariv reported.

The Hebrew-language daily reported that hitchhiking on main roads in the West Bank has always worried Israeli security, who will begin providing public transportation to prevent such incidents.
