An Israeli soldier was arrested on suspicion that he leaked information on military operations in the West Bank to settlers.

Though no specific charges have been made, it is suspected that the soldier’s actions allowed extremist settlers to disrupt Israeli army operations and carry out “price-tag” attacks.

Investigators for the Israeli military questioned the soldier Monday, and when he refused to cooperate arrested him, according to reports. 

The soldier, a resident of the West Bank who is a married father of two, serves in the Samaria Brigade’s rabbinate as a kashrut supervisor and is not believed to belong to any extremist groups, according to reports.

Israeli extremists last month vandalized an Israeli army base in the region, reportedly in retaliation for the razing of three homes in the West Bank’s Migron outpost.
