Increased Enforcement is Welcome But Overdue

The Civil Administration has recently and significantly increased the demolition of illegal Palestinian Authority Arab buildings in Judea and Samaria. The emphasis is on the open areas, where a long battle with the Palestinian Authority has been waged.

Minister in the Defense Ministry Bezalel Smotrich stated, “Lawlessness over land also affects security lawlessness; the government of Israel will fight both. I congratulate the Civil Administration and support the Supervision Unit in their efforts to continue this important task with greater dedication.”

This is good news, indeed. But, why was this demolition of illegal PA Arab buildings not strongly enforced before the October 7 massacre?
