AFSI has reported on the recent, and much overdue, legalization of Havat Gilad. This area of Judea and Samaria was established in 2002 in memory of Gilad Zar, son of Moshe Zar and security coordinator of the Shomron Regional Council, who was shot and killed in 2001.
It took the death of a Jew, Rabbi Raziel Shevach, z”l, in order for the Israeli government to finally legalize Havat Gilad on February 4, 2018. Why didn’t Israel exercise its sovereignty on legalizing Havat Gilad years ago?
Now Netiv Avot is now facing destruction. Will it, God forbid, take the death of another Jew in order for the Israeli government to stop the destruction of Jewish property?
