Yosh officials accuse police of “additional provocation” at Gilad Farm (Chavat Gilad) in Shomron, blocking the entrance to the community on Wednesday afternoon, prohibiting people from entering or leaving.
According to the report from Yosh officials, border police have declared the community a ‘closed military zone’ and therefore, civilians are barred from entering. Police officials have not shown the military order to anyone. Yosh officials add there is no authorization to close down the community and it is just a continuation of police harassment that began earlier in the week.
