Tens of vehicles from across Israel set out in single file to show support and solidarity to the residents of the South Hebron Hills on Friday.
Women in Green, a staunchly pro-nationalist group which organized the event said it was meant to protest an occurrence during Sukkot in which they say police dressed up disguised as Arabs, and staged a possible infiltration of the Jewish community of Susiya, entrapping residents who came out to defend the town from an Arab attack.
According to the attorney of the accused, a representative of the Honenu legal rights organization, policemen dressed as Arabs approached the Har Sinai farm, owned by the wife and children of Yair Har-Sinai, who was murdered by Arab terrorists in 2001. Four Jewish men confronted the Arabs, and a fight ensued. The officers responded with tasers and tear gas, with several more emerging from hiding and arresting three of the men. The fourth escaped ,but was arrested on Thursday.
According to their attorney, the story’s ending was much better than it could have been – had the armed security guard of Susiya discovered the “Arabs” before the four unarmed Jewish men, someone might have been shot.
Friday’s caravan of vehicles drove from Kiryat Arba, next to the biblical city and home to the Tomb of the Patriarchs, Hebron, and waved banners saying “You are not alone.
According to the organizers, Jewish communities there have suffered the harassment and provocation of anti-Israel activists for years, who come to the region to protest Jewish life in what they say is the heartland of the Jewish people.
The Benjamin Residents’ Committee, the Samaria Residents’ Committee, and the Komemiyut movement also took part in the event.
