Yitzhar Exile Arrested


Police detectives arrested, Sunday afternoon, Calev Blank, one of the residents of the Samarian Jewish community of Yitzhar who was recently banished from the community under an administrative order, according to the Honenu legal-aid organization.

Blank was one of four of the banished Yitzhar residents who were driving to the community to take part in exercises ahead of events in September. While on the Geha Highway, east of Tel Aviv, a police vehicle cut them off. After asking for their identity papers, detectives said they had a warrant for Blank and took him into custody without showing the warrant or providing details.
