      Judea and Samaria District Police and Shin Bet security services served
      12 West Bank settlers with administrative restraining orders overnight
      on Monday.

      The orders were served in the wake of intelligence gathered by the Shin
      Bet, according to which a group of extremists have been involved in
      leading, planning and carrying out widespread secret, violent attacks
      against Palestinians in the West Bank over the last two years


      Attacks include arson attacks on a number of mosques, vehicles and
      buildings belonging to Palestinians, causing real danger to human life
      and disruption of the public order and security in the area.

      GOC Central Command Avi Mizrahi, issued the twelve restraining orders
      for residents the Yitzhar settlement near Nablus in the West Bank. Ten
      of the orders are six months to one year in duration, and refer to the
      entire area of Judea and Samaria. The remaining two orders specify the
      area of Yitzhar.

      This was the second or third time that some of the recipients received
      restraining orders.

      Although the Shin Bet already had intelligence pointing to these
      activities last year, Major-General Mizrahi only served the orders in
      the wake of violence that has broken out in the area this past month.

      National Union MK Dr. Michael Ben-Ari said in response that Prime
      Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is adopting a system of “hitting the
      settlers to save his skin.”
