2. This is another Ma'an article about an article
That outlet has a tendency to simply paraphrase articles written in the Israeli press highlighting the bits they wish to stress and removing the parts they aren't as interested in.

Here is the Ynet article itself that this article paraphrases and edits:

4 girls arrested for 'Price tag' violence,7340,L-4084194,00.html

Here is the totality of the remarks you "snipped" to in the Ma'an version (which itself "snipped" whatever it didn't like from the Ynet article it re-wrote):

The girls are being represented by Attorney Naftali Wertzbiger, who told Ynet this was one way teens relieved stress nowadays. He added that instead of educating them, the state was turning them into criminals.

"Police are doing their job, but welfare and prosecution officials must understand that there is frustration and rebellion here that require positive treatment. Arresting them and cuffing them will only cause identification and in increase in these crimes, which no doubt have no justification."
