Labor leader Shelly Yacimovich said Saturday that while the decision by settlers to leave the Oz Zion outpost without a struggle was the right move to make, it did not erase Friday's attacks against Border Police officers.

"Justice must be pursued against the lawbreakers," Yacimovich stated. "This was a grave undermining of the rule of law, and a challenge to the state, its laws and the IDF, whose strength is necessary to our existence here."

She added: "We see here a clear and dangerous expression of the  legitimization of refusal to carry out orders and selective adherence to the rule of law."
