Uprooting of Vineyard Part of Unending Harassment


Chairman Avi Ro'eh of the Binyamin Regional Council called, Monday, on security services to protect Jewish residents and agriculture in the region. Reacting to the uprooting of 3,000 vines in the vineyards in the Shilo-bloc community of Meshek Achya, Ro'eh said, "Unfortunately the uprooting of the vineyard is part of ongoing harassment by Arabs in the region which is directed at residents and agriculture."

"We expect the army to protect the people and agriculture, and to lead to the order and security in the region. It is unthinkable that such an action may pass without any response from the police and security forces," he stressed.
