As a result of an investigation being conducted against the security officer of Yishuv Nili, the IDF has ordered the weapons used in the community’s sentry post returned to the armory.
The security officer is being investigated after a number of Arabs complained that after they entered the boundaries of the Jewish community, they were detained by him. As a result, the weapons used by the sentry post were placed back in the armory.
Angry residents question why their security officer is under investigation for doing his job and why the weapons were put under lock and key, placing an entire community in danger. Letters were sent to IDF Central District Commander Major-General Gadi Shamni and area Battalion Commander Colonel Aviv Reshef, informing them that if chas v’sholom anything happens as a result of their decision, they will be held accountable. A copy of the letter was also sent to MK (National Union) Uri Ariel seeking his assistance and intervention.
