Just minutes before candle lighting on Yom Kippur, border police arrived at the Ramat Migron outpost and began searching the complex. Seven people were arrested for violating the IDF’s closed military zone designation. The detainees were transported to the Shar Binyamin police station after candle lighting on Yom Kippur.
They were released at 23:00 but opted to remain in the police station until after the fast day to avoid chilul Shabbos/Yomtov.
