IDF Expels Jewish Extremists From West Bank

The Israel Defense Forces announced the temporary expulsion of 12 right-wing extremists from the West Bank on Thursday over suspicions they orchestrated and executed clandestine violent attacks against Palestinians.

News of the activists’ imminent expulsion came after Haaretz reported on Tuesday that the State Prosecutor’s Office intended to indict eight right-wing activists for allegedly tracking IDF activities in the region in the West bank.i

According to police, the eight activists operated an “outpost intelligence HQ,” which involved a methodical tracking of IDF movements in the West Bank, meant to disrupt the demolition of illegal outposts.

On Thursday, GOC Central Command Avi Mizrahi ordered that 12 right-wing activists be notified of their temporary expulsion from the West Bank, for periods ranging from 3 to 9 months.

The military acted on information, according to which the youths were allegedly involved in the planning, direction, and execution of secret violent attacks against Palestinians residents of the West Bank as well as against Israelis security forces.
