Police Stop March to Outposts


Police stopped about 200 people from embarking on a march to Samarian outpost communities on Monday morning. Yossi Dashan of the Nachala (Inheritance) movement told Arutz Sheva that those taking part in the Alu Na'aleh (Let us go up) march spent the night at the Gelilot Junction, east of Tel Aviv and essentially prevented them from entering Highway 5 to start the march, claiming it was illegal.

Darshan expressed hope that the march would be allowed to proceed and that the delay would allow more marchers to join. An afternoon gathering is scheduled for the Yarkon Junction to mark the end of the march's first day.
