The Labor Party slammed Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for failing to hold settlers accountable for breaking the law after five Border Patrol officers were injured in an attempt to evacuate the Oz Zion outpost on Friday.

"We call on the prime minister, who says he is strong but when it comes to outposts worryingly becomes weak, to ensure that the laws of the State of Israel will be upheld beyond the Green Line as they are upheld within. Anything else will constitute a terrible blow to Israeli democracy and to the power of the government to rule," the party said in a statement.
