Giv'at Menachem Destroyed

Security forces destroyed the Binyamin region outpost community of Giv'at Binyamin, next to Nachliel, in the pre-dawn hours of Monday morning. The community was home to a synagogue and buildings housing a number of single men.

The demolition followed the arrest of three community residents four days ago. Referring to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich, Land of Israel activist Baruch Marzel reacted by saying, "Apparently what happened after the demolition of Havat Gilad was not enough and they want to set the region on fire." People are still calling for an independent investigation of police violence at the Samarian Jewish community.
