Sunday, March 26, 2017, 10:19 Six Jews were detained on Saturday night (March 25), after Shabbat, at Homesh in the northern Shomron on suspicion of violating the Disengagement Law and staying at the site. Honenu’s legal headquarters received a report that while a group staying at the site was eating the final meal of Shabbat, army and police forces arrived at Homesh, but did not catch the entire group. The detainees were taken to the Ariel Police Station and interrogated from the middle of the night until dawn. Honenu Attorney Nati Rom assisted the detainees at the station. On Sunday morning the police announced that they will be brought to the Petah Tikva Magistrate Court for a deliberation. Honenu Attorney Chai Haber will represent the detainees, all of whom are adults, some of them married. Homesh was destroyed as part of the 2005 Disengagement Plan. Since then a a public campaign, in which Knesset Members and Ministers calling for canceling the Disengagement Law and rebuilding Homesh are taking part, has been waged in support of Homesh.
