Here to Stay: Evyatar Responds Just as a Zionist Should

Hundreds of religious Zionist youth and families, joined by several coalition MKs, encamped earlier this week overnight at an area in Samaria that previous governments had promised to recognize. Evyatar residents said the proper answer to the terrorist murders at Eli is to re-establish the community.

Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan said in a statement, “The return to Evyatar is the proper Zionist response to the barbaric murder of four beloved sons of this nation. Anyone who tries to kick us off our land will get a thousand Evyatars. The noble families of Evyatar have waited long enough. Neither [U.S. President Joe] Biden, the EU, nor the terrorist Palestinian Authority will distance us from our land. We’re here to stay.”

With that said, more than 1,000 Israelis have been reported to have made their way to Evyatar. Unlike previous attempts to repopulate the village, security forces have allowed the residents to enter the village itself, take up residence in the buildings, and conduct community activities there. Channel 13 News reports that the move to repopulate Evyatar was done with the knowledge and consent of Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Gallant.

The pioneering spirit of the residents of Evyatar is inspiring and AFSI stands with them every step of the way!
