A Jewish settler who allegedly confessed to a 12-year spree of murderous hate-crimes has been arrested in the West Bank, Sky News reports.
Yaakov “Jack” Teitel, 37, was branded a Jewish “terrorist” in the Israeli media over attacks against Palestinians, left-wing and minority Israelis and homosexuals.
He is accused of murdering a Palestinian taxi driver and a West Bank shepherd in 1997.
In 2008, he allegedly maimed a 15-year-old boy with a booby-trapped present because he belonged to a community of Jews who believe in Jesus.
