Fighters tell about the complex reality in the Hebron sector: "We are being provoked so that we respond" | Israel today


The fighters described to "Israel Today" the complex reality in the background of the Hebron storm • On the tension: "The friction is daily, they look at us at every step" • Some think that "the activist who was beaten is from Besot" • Others admit: "The soldiers are not suckers and torturers - it burns in them" • The full article on Friday in "Israel this week"

"Everyone remembers Hebron when there is an incident of extremism on the part of Jews, but that is rare. On the other hand, there is daily anarchist activity in Hebron," Lt. Col. (resp.) Yaron Buskila, secretary general of the security movement, tells Israel Hayom.

Buskila served in a variety of officer positions in Hebron.

The reserve officer says that "there are people who come to fixed places to stir up the area and create a conflict".

Indeed, the arena of Hebron, as any current or past fighter knows, is something else.

Compared to activity in any other sector of the Yosh, in Hebron the frontal confrontation with a provocative population is part of the daily event.

"We had a position where children came every other day and threw stones at us, and we couldn't do anything to them," says C, who until recently served in the IDF, among others in Hebron. "This is a very media sensitive sector.

It is not a hot section, like Nablus or Jenin, but the friction is daily.

We were warned when we entered the sector.

We were told that every step we take is being looked at, and that we must be very careful about the values ​​of the IDF," adds G.

A routine of confrontations

Maor Reda served in Hebron in 2018 and says that verbal confrontations were commonplace.

"The left-wing organizations have regular tours, during which they do mind engineering for the audience that comes with them. Every time they came, there was a security force that stuck to them.

"The tour guides usually do not interact with the soldiers, but those who come with them do try to confront sometimes. The soldiers are not suckers, they answer. It burns in everyone, regardless of left or right."

Maor also testifies: "There were cases where I saw provocations, verbal confrontations. Look at the last incident. The one who was beaten by the soldier from Besut, he got his photo taken. Everyone comes there with cameras to try to document such an incident."

On Friday, "Israel this week" will publish an extensive article in which the working method of one of the radical organizations that have been active in Hebron in recent years will be revealed: the ISM organization ("International Solidarity Movement").

This is an organization that sends volunteers from Europe and supports BDS.

A series of classified documents that reached Israel Hayom from the Ad Kaan organization reveal the operating instructions of the volunteers in Hebron and what their goals are.

One of the documents is an intelligence document for all intents and purposes, which includes tracking fighters and the nature of their activities, and marking settlers who are considered problematic in their eyes.

Like a spy organization

A significant part of the guide is detail about the checkpoints in Hebron, which also includes descriptions and hours of operation that would not embarrass a professional espionage organization.

The security forces are careful not to allow the checkpoints to be photographed and demand that left-wing activists delete the photos, so that it is impossible to avoid the thought that this is documentation from a hidden camera.

"An important note regarding security: in the event of a home invasion, even if unlikely, throw this guide out the window or get rid of it in some way. It must not get into the hands of the army!", the activists in the guide say.

"The friction in Hebron with the IDF and the settlers is much greater than anywhere else," explains Gilad Ach, chairman of the Ad Kan organization, why the city has become such a popular arena among left-wing activists from abroad.

According to But, "They have apartments in other places, like Nablus and Ramallah, but there is no friction there and it's not interesting. They no longer have Gaza and Gush Katif, so Hebron is the action."
