MK Says Evicting Children from Hilltops is Child Abuse
The Head of the Knesset Committee on the Rights of the Child, MK Zevulun Orlev (Jewish Home Party), submitted a complaint on behalf of the committee about children who are evicted from their homes. Recently the Israeli police and Civil Administration have evicted families from several hilltop communities in Judea and Samaria including Mitzpe Avichai and Oz Tzion. Orlev said that the eviction of minors is a violation of the law prohibiting the abuse of minors. He added that there have been cases of police brutality against minors during evictions.
