Settlers attack Police disguised as Arabs

Being Palestinian with a car is provacative, according to Defense attorney Adi Keidar. Haaretz:

The Kfar Sava Magistrates Court freed on Friday five settlers a day after they had been arrested by police who had masqueraded as Palestinians.

The detainees, who reside in an illegal West Bank outpost, were arrested on Thursday after attacking the disguised police and vandalizing their car.

[…] Judge David Gadol ruled that the police acts were unlawful and ordered the release of the detainees to house arrest, while issuing a restraining order prohibiting their return to the outpost.

The police offered bait but, other than that, no encouragement. Are all sting operations illegal in Israel? Many of the comments from Israelis are outraged.
