Unusually severe orders issued to Shomron resident

Tuesday, March 3, 2015, 21:35 Meir Ettinger, a resident of Givat Ronen, a hilltop community in the Shomron, was detained on Tuesday, March 3 by police detectives who served him with administrative orders stating that he will be banned from entering Yehuda, Shomron and Jerusalem and will be confined to house arrest at night. One of the orders signed by IDF Central Command Major-General Nitzan Alon states that Ettinger will be banned from Yehuda and Shomron for one year. Another order signed by the Commander of the Home Front Command, Major-General Ayal Eisenberg states that Ettinger will be banned for half a year from Jerusalem, under house arrest at night for three months and prohibited from contacting six of his friends for six months. Friends of Ettinger say that it is not clear where he is supposed to stay during the time he is under house arrest. The orders were signed several days ago, are already in effect and ban Ettinger from his own home, his parents’ home and his wife’s parents’ home. Honenu harshly criticized the orders. “We denounce the orders, which are unusually severe. The severity of the orders, which constitute an almost unprecedented act on the part of the IDF and the GSS, is indicative of hysteria. The orders are being used specifically against Jewish residents of Yehuda and Shomron, and not against rioting Arabs: once again we are witness to the security system forgetting who the enemy is and who is on their side.”
