Elisha Yered, who was arrested after the lynching in Binyamin in which Yehiel Indor was seriously injured, and was released due to lack of evidence, sums up the days that have passed since then and says that madness has gripped the system.

As a reminder, Yered was arrested on suspicion of obstructing an investigation after arriving at the scene where a Palestinian assailant was shot dead after hitting Indor with a heavy rock to his head.

In a series of tweets posted on his Twitter account, Yered wrote: "I will conclude, God willing, this absurd saga that we've been through in the past two weeks, but it seems to me that one of the central unit investigators who tried to extract a coerced confession from me at any cost precisely summed up in one of his discredited questions the madness that has gripped the system."

Yered recounted that "it happened during one of the interrogations after I had told them that we were just a step away from being killed in the event, and it was a clear case of self-defense. The investigator confronted me, saying: 'If you knew that the situation was going to become dangerous to the point that you understood from their actions that they were coming to attack, maybe do something even more serious than that, why did you bring a gun with you to the scene?!'"

"Yes, exactly that," Yered wrote. "According to the central unit investigators' approach, if you're Jewish, you must quietly be slaughtered and accept your fate. How dare you, with all your audacity, defend yourself? You'll be thrown into the depths of the interrogations, the entire central unit of the Judea and Samaria district will focus solely on you, and you'll be charged with murder under severe circumstances."

Yered noted that "the journey is far from over, but right now, it's important for me to express my gratitude first and foremost to the Creator of the World for the chain of miracles that accompanied us throughout the entire arrest. To the Honenu organization, the champions, without whom I would be in a different place today, and the web of lies would still be reigning."

Yered expressed gratitude to the ministers and members of the Knesset who supported him, to journalists who acted objectively and refrained from publishing information based on briefings but only after thorough verification.

"And to all the people of Israel who moved and warmed my heart with the grant for the release, and to the thousands of individuals who supported, demonstrated, fought, and prayed for our release. Jews, do not despair, the road is still long and full of obstacles, but we will prevail, God willing," Yered concluded.
