Residents of Judea and Samaria plan to hold a large rally in Paris Square near Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Jerusalem home on Tuesday night to demand better security against terrorist attacks.

The slogan for the rally will be “Israel is united against terrorism.”

Rally organizers are also calling for new building as the best response to the wave of Palestinian violence that is sweeping the country.

Led by Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan, settlers have been manning protest tents in front of Netanyahu’s home since October 1, when Palestinian gunmen killed Eitam and Naama Henkin as they drove with their four children to their home in Neria, a small community in the West Bank.

The protesters received a boost of support from Likud and Bayit Yehudi politicians. Dagan himself is a Likud member, as are many of the settler leaders.
