Administrative decrees banning the 12 Yitzhar activists suspected of violence against Palestinians are not an alternative to the collection of evidence and the execution of due process in proving their guilt, Yesha Council chairman Danny Dayan said on Tuesday.  He called the decrees a "forbidden means in democratic society."

The decrees banned six people from a number of West Bank settlements, while three were banned from the West Bank in general. Three more were banned from Yitzhar.

The activists are suspected of carrying out arson attacks on a number of mosques, cars, and buildings owned by Palestinians, "causing real danger to human lives and disturbing public order," police said.
