Five students detained in raid on Yeshivat Homesh
Monday, November 23, 2015, 14:29 On the morning of Monday, November 23, an Arab terrorist infiltrated the area of Homesh, one of the four Jewish communities in the Northern Shomron destroyed during the Expulsion of summer 2005 in which all 21 Gush Katif communities were also destroyed. He intentionally drove his car into a Yeshivat Homesh student who was wounded and hospitalized. Several hours later police and army forces raided Homesh with the aim of detaining Yeshivat Homesh students. Since the Expulsion, Yeshivat Homesh has continuously held classes in some of Homesh’s many caves and also in tents which students brought to the site. Honenu’s headquarters received a report of a chase during the above-mentioned raid after which five yeshiva students were detained. One of the detainees is the brother of the wounded student who is currently hospitalized in Beilinson Hospital. Upon receiving the news of the detention, Honenu Attorney Adi Kedar began to verify its cause. It is most likely that the detainees were detained for violating the Disengagement Law which forbids staying on the sites of the destroyed Gush Katif and Northern Shomron communities.
