IDF Commander Issues Adminisrative Orders Against Jews


(IsraelNN.com) IDF Central Commander has issued administrative orders against a number of Jewish residents of Samaria.

The orders, three months in length, prevents the Jews from being in the region of their residence.

The reason given for the orders is that the Jews must be distanced for the duration of the olive harvest.

Neriah Ofan Among Those Who Received Restraining Orders


(IsraelNN.com) One of the Jewish residents of Samaria to be barred from returning to his home by IDF administrative order is Neriah Ofan.

Ofan was victim to a similar order in 2006, along with 19 others.

Prior to the 2005 Disengagement, Ofan was jailed without trial via administrative detention order due to fears by the government that his logistical skills in organizing the monthly encirclement of the Temple Mount were being used to organize opposition to the expulsion.

MK AriEL: Administrative Orders Scandalous

(IsraelNN.com) MK Uri Ariel (National Union) responded angrily to reports that the IDF has issued administrative orders distancing several Samaria Jews from their homes.

MK Ariel said the renewal of the use of administrative orders for such purposes violates a Knesset decision condemning such use by the security establishment of the administrative orders in the past.

"The actions are even more sever in light of the fact that no such steps were taken against the Arabs and left-wing activists who uprooted 6,000 Jewish-owned vines near Nerya two months ago."
