Ten right-wing Israeli activists banned from West Bank

The Shin Bet domestic security service explained in an unprecedented statement Sunday why restraining orders had been issued against 10 Jewish right-wing activists, banning their access to the West Bank for ten months. "In light of several terrorist attacks committed recently in which there was even loss of life, restraining orders were issued against ten activists on the recommendation of the Shin Bet.” Their purpose was to keep these activists “away from illegal outposts such as Habaladim near the West Bank settlement of Kochav Ha’Shachar from which they set out for attacks.”  This action was taken, the statement said, “in the spirit of zero policy for terrorism,” ruled in a cabinet meeting.

Administrative action against Jews on this scale and such severity is likewise unprecedented.
Among the recipients of the orders were two minors from the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in Yitzhar, whose homes are in Gush Etzion, three youths who live near Shilo, and the father of a child from the Geulat Tziyon outpost.
