The woman admits that she knows one of the Israeli men (messages, pictured) but said she was attacked by the entire group for an hour after meeting him
& # 39; One of them held me and then I saw at least twelve faces … one hour or so, one after the other.
& # 39; I was released at some point after I fainted and I ran out of the room, met friends and they took me half-naked to the clinic. & # 39;
The police were summoned and arrested the Israelis before being taken to court on Thursday, where a judge ruled that they could be detained for eight days while officers investigate the DNA evidence they provided. They all deny rape.
