While most Jews had completed their seuda mafseket-the meal before the fast, Samaria police were busy carrying out their last mission before the holiday – arresting seven Jewish residents of the Ramat Migron outpost, Hakol Hayehudi reports.

The detainees were rushed to the Sha’ar Binyamin police station after the holiday had begun, and interrogated on suspicion that they had defied an IDF-imposed restriction on the outpost. The seven were fingerprinted, regardless of the sacred day, and released into the night at 11 PM. They were forced to proceed with the Yom Kippur services in the Sha’ar Binyamin compound.

Back at the outpost, on Shabbat morning, some Bedouins set fire to equipment. The arsonists had escaped, and towards the end of the holiday a great fire started spreading around the outpost and some homes had to be evacuated.

  1. horror on Yom Kippur its an terrible shame.

  2. Jewish thugs dressed in uniform attacking their fellow Jews for being Zionists and wanting to live in land given by Hashem as an inheritance for all time. And on erev Yom Kippur. It sickens me. It's beyond disgraceful. Israel's leaders are the new Kappos. Actually worse. No one is forcing Israel's leaders to drag Jews from their homes and beat them on Yom Kippur.

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    are the police working with the arabs?

  4. I am one of the evacuated families. The sheer terror experienced by precious children who, under 13 months ago, were evacuated from homes that were completely destroyed… there are no words. Thank you, Jewish Press, for reporting this largely overlooked "incident". Thank you, also, to the over 10 fire teams and ambulance teams that, while still fasting, rushed to help us all. They did so with incredible commitment and sensitivity. You can follow Migron in English on our Facebook group Migron (English).

    This is scary. is it a police state over there right now?

  6. Kellie Coulson I guess that's debatable. Ask two Jews, get three answers.
