MK Ariel Responds to Clashes: IDF's Role is to Protect


Chairman of the State Control Committee, MK Uri Ariel, responded to Saturday's clashes in Esh Kodesh, saying, "When the IDF is standing by when Arab rioters are attempting to damage Jewish property, in the end Jewish blood will also be spilled. The IDF must be faithful and devoted to its most basic role as an army meant to protect the Jewish people, wherever they are, and to not give the enemy the feeling as if Jewish security has been abandoned, as was the case in the outpost of Esh Kodesh during Shabbat. I call on the Prime Minister to give the army an unequivocal order to protect the people of Judea and Samaria with full force and without fear. "
