After the Repeal of the Disengagement Law in Samaria: The Homesh Yeshiva was moved to state land - voila! news


Highlights: Samaria Regional Council moved the meeting to a new location. The move bypassed the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories. "A decision that embarrasses the IDF is defined at this stage as illegal," the council said. The decision was approved by the Defense Minister, but not by the IDF, who are responsible for the area. The meeting was moved in the middle of the night in a "covert operation," according to the council. The council thanked all those who helped move the meeting from its previous location.

About two months after the law under which the settlement was evacuated was repealed, the Samaria Regional Council announced that the meeting had been moved to its new location on the way to its regularization despite international criticism. The move was approved by Galant, but military sources criticized bypassing the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories: "The decision embarrass the IDF"

The Samaria Regional Council announced Monday morning that yeshiva students in the Homesh settlement moved it overnight to a permanent location on state land. This followed the repeal of the cleansing law in Samaria two months ago, and despite strong international criticism of the possible return to the settlement that was evacuated in 2005.

According to the settlers, the meeting was moved during the night in a "covert operation." A security source said Defense Minister Yoav Galant approved the operation, but IDF sources criticized the decision.

"A decision that embarrasses the IDF is defined at this stage as illegal even though it is state land," the sources said, noting that the move bypassed the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories. According to them, "preliminary planning should have been carried out, engineering approvals as required by law, and in addition, this destabilizes and agitates the area, and may drag the area into friction and attacks."

This morning, Mayor Yossi Dagan erected a mezuzah at the entrance to the meeting. "A historic moment - just steps away from correcting the terrible injustice of the expulsion in Homesh," he said.

Yeshiva Director General Shmuel Wendy added, "Tonight we took another step towards the full regulation of the settlement and yeshiva in Homesh. We thank all the donors, volunteers and all those involved throughout the years, who helped reach this moment."
