The Israel Defense Forces can make use of administrative restraining orders to ban left-wing activists from the Judea and Samaria, according to orders issued Saturday night by Defense Minister Naftali Bennett.
It marks the first time the Defense Ministry has determined that blanket injunctions, as opposed to isolated ones here and there, can be used against left-wing activists.
“The circus is over. We will act harshly against domestic enemies that harm IDF soldiers and the country’s security,” Bennett said. He has asked the IDF Central Command, the general security establishment including the Shin Bet and the Israeli police force, to work on the matter.
What more can we say other than it’s about time to get tough on those who seek to harm the IDF and Israel? It’s totally unacceptable for such hostile organizations to conduct business against Israel in the manner that they do. Bravo MK Bennett!
