CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Israeli Police have arrested seven Arabs from the east Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Shuafat for impersonating Palestinian Authority (PA) police officers.
A media gag order on the arrests was lifted Monday.
The seven men, who operated as a police unit in Jerusalem's Old City, allegedly threatened Arab residents and may have negotiated a deal to buy ammunition.
On July 22, the "policemen" abducted two children, ages five and nine, from their widowed mother's car and took them to the Ramallah governor's mansion.
According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, the mother had to sign an agreement -- in the presence of the governor -- agreeing to visitation rights for her late husband's family before the children were returned to her.
The police also questioned an attorney, representing one of the suspects, for his role in the kidnapping.
