Judea,Samaria Council: Ministry of Defense Endangers Us


The Judea and Samaria Regional Council is officially protesting the Ministry of Defense's decision to slash 50 security posts in Judea and Samaria communities, in addition to the 33 that were cut only a few months ago.

Yigal Dilmoni, Vice Presdient of the Council, elaborated, "Unfortunately, it has been proven over and over that a real and present threat still exists, and can potentially have most tragic results if we don't have any military or security forces to help guard the communities here. In the Judea and Samaria region there is no extended barrier fence or technological devices to buffer between the Arabs and the Jewish communities whose sole protectors will be themselves."

"The State of Israel must protect all of its citizens -  in Judea and Samaria, in the Golan in the north, and encompassing Gaza -  so they can live normal lives,", he added.
