Restraining orders banning them from the West Bank were issued against 10 Jewish far-right activists on Sunday, the Shin Bet said, as part of what they described as their “unyielding campaign against terror.”

In a statement put out on Sunday morning, the Shin Bet said that “due to a number of terror attacks that have been carried out recently, including ones in which people were killed, the Shin Bet recommended restraining orders against 10 activists, which have been signed.”

The Shin Bet said the restraining orders were put in place as part of “the unyielding policy against terror and with the goal of dismantling the terror infrastructure that has been responsible for these attacks and to prevent further actions.”

They said that the restraining orders are meant to prevent the 10 activists from reaching illegal hilltop outposts in the West Bank, in particular the “Baladim” outpost, from where the Shin Bet said those responsible for the terror attacks came from.
