IDF: All Activists Removed From Homesh

Army officials reported on Wednesday morning that all activists have been removed from Homesh. Many activists left after the army allowed buses to come and pick them up, but hundreds of young activists decided to stay. They were forcibly expelled by the border police.

Several thousand Israelis took part in the march to Homesh. Members of the Likud party officially joined the march, sending four buses of activists. The march was the third return to Homesh since Jews were expelled from the region in 2005. Previous marches were held on Hanukah and Pesach (Passover).
