Yesterday thousands of Israelis took part in a march to the Homesh outpost, where the yeshiva was located, where Yehuda Dimentman studied, who became a victim of a terrorist attack. In this way, the march participants tried to express their disagreement with the decision to destroy the yeshiva, according to the Israeli press.
According to various estimates, between 5,000 and 15,000 people took part in the demonstration. They withstood the wind, rain and cold to climb the hill, and stayed there after dark. Among the participants in the march were members of the family of the deceased Yehuda Dimentman. His family fears that the IDF will evacuate the yeshiva and deploy an army or MAGAV unit on the hill.
Minister of Internal Security Omer Bar-Lev also hinted at this: “What is illegal must be fought.”
Avigdor Dimentman, brother of the deceased, said that “the government must take the right side of history and rebuild Homesh.” He warned that if the government does not do this, the people will stand on the side of the hilltop.
“I really hope – and from here I appeal to the government of Israel – that we will win today and tomorrow. We will win. It may take us five, 10 or 15 years, but we will return here and everywhere in the Land of Israel, '' he said.
The head of the regional council of Samaria settlements, Yossi Dagan, who addressed the prime minister -Minister Naftali Bennett with a request to “ resolutely prevent the evacuation of Yeshiva Homesh, permit it and allow students to study and live there. ''
“The nation wants Homesh to be rebuilt,” Yossi Dagan said. br />
It is worth noting that in order for the demonstration to pass safely, the IDF closed the roads to the Palestinian village of Burka. As a result, there were clashes between Palestinians and soldiers. The Palestinian news agency WAFA reported 125 people were injured.
