Sunday, January 29, 2023 Close to his wedding day, Ariel Dahari was informed that despite the administrative order confining him to Nof Ayalon, he would be released for the ceremony. He was married last Thursday in Jerusalem as planned and also released for the Shabbat sheva brachot in Jerusalem. Although the couple had signed a lease for the rental of a housing unit in Yad Binyamin, Dahari was not allowed to change the location stipulated in the order. The couple was forced to find, with great difficulty, an apartment to rent in Nof Ayalon.
Ariel Dahari received an administrative order signed by the GOC of the Home Front Command, Major-General Rafi Milo several weeks before his wedding was scheduled to take place. Although he was living in the Shomron at the time, the order prohibits Dahari from leaving the community in which his parents live (Nof Ayalon), which is not in the Shomron. As of the early afternoon two days before the ceremony, Dahari had not received permission to attend his own wedding in Jerusalem.
In a letter to Honenu Attorney Adi Keidar, who requested that the order be canceled, Major-General Milo stated that the order was necessary to "ensure the security of the State and public peace."
Keidar responded to the letter: "The restrictions that have been imposed on Ariel Dahari for years constitute a severe violation of his liberty and freedom of movement. Currently, when the young man is trying to build a home, it would be expected that the authorities would allow and encourage him in his efforts. But instead, the GSS continues their persecution of him, with means against which he cannot defend himself. He should be charged, then he will be able to completely prove his innocence, and the heavy restrictions constantly weighing on him will be lifted."
