Yesha Civilian Road Patrols Start

Patrols by officers and other weapon-carrying reservists started Thursday evening on roads in Judea and Samaria. The Binyamin and Samaria residents' councils are coordinating the effort and calling on other resident's councils in the region to do the same.

Binyamin Residents' Council chairman Itzik Shadmi says the patrols have been introduced between the hours of 6:00 and 11:00 p.m. to augment reduced military patrols. The roads to be patrolled include the Rimon route between the Alon Junction and Michmash, the road between Ateret and Neve-Tzuf and the highway between Shavei Shomron and Avnei Chefetz. Chaim Yaakovi if Kidah, who is participating in the patrols, said that right now, the highways being patrolled are the Alon Highway, the Shavei Somron road and the Huwara-Elon Moreh road.
