Mass March in Samaria Sends Gov’t Strong Message

Samaria governor Yossi Dagan joined the Samaria march together with the Minister of Settlements Orit Strook. The march went towards the altar of the biblical Joshua in response to attempts to destroy the site by the Palestinian Authority.

The participants called to protect the historical sites in Judea and Samaria and protested the Palestinian Authority’s attempts to appropriate the Jewish historical sites including the Cave of the Patriarchs, Ancient Jericho, the Temple Mount, the Joshua’s altar in ancient Samaria, which they are trying to appropriate “for Palestinian heritage” with the assistance of the European Union.

Minister Strook said that “It should be clear: wherever the Palestinian Authority acts contrary to its commitment according to the Oslo Accords – in any such place the State of Israel must take responsibility and act on its own, and this principle certainly also includes situations of destruction of heritage.”
