Residents of the Har Hevron Regional Council early today held a demonstration at the Tarqumiyah Crossing. Their demand: that the government ensure security near the separation wall.
“There’s complete chaos and we’re all suffering from it,” Council head Yochai Demeri said.
Thousands of Palestinian Authority Arabs enter Israel each day through gaps in the security fence, causing enormous traffic jams, and worse, upsetting the security of Israel’s citizens in Judea and Samaria and around the country.
“Our security is forfeit, and no one cares,” said Jacklyn Amar, a resident of Adora. “We see here, every morning, how people cross into here without anyone examining them to see whether they are bringing in coronavirus or any other security issue.”
Sovereignty NOW would end the lack of governance and provide the security the residents of Judea and Samaria so desperately need and are entitled to.
