Restriction orders distributed to 11 extreme rightists

Activists handed out decrees restricting movement ahead of evacuation of illegal outposts in West Bank

The Judea and Samaria Police handed out Monday morning restriction orders to 11 extreme Right activists, as a first step ahead of the evacuation of illegal outposts in the West Bank.


Another two activists who could not be located will be given the orders later in the day.


Some of the decrees, which have been signed by Central Command Chief Yair Naveh, were issued for three months and some for a year. The orders are also divided into two types: Some restrict the activists' movement to their place of residence, while others ban entry to the West Bank altogether.


The moves are meant to keep rightists away from outposts the government wants to evacuate.


'Dictatorial steps'


The outposts slated for evacuation – Havat Maon in south Mount Hebron, Havat Skali, Hill 725 and Givat Arusi – were selected due to the fact that their residents have been accused of damaging Palestinian property.


Settler representatives described as "positive" a the first meeting between Yesha Council heads and Peretz, in his Tel Aviv office Sunday evening.


Last Thursday Peretz gave the Israel Defense Forces two weeks to complete preparations for a plan to evacuate illegal outposts in the West Bank.


Right-wing activist Itamar Ben-Gvir responded to Peretz' decision saying 15 restriction orders were issued against him in the past. "The government's attempt to shut our mouths won't help. If they think they can prevent a struggle through dictatorial steps, they are wrong. The government is panicking," he said.
