Dozens of protesters amassed Saturday night at the house of Judea and Samaria Division Commander Brigadier General Nitzan Alon in the Nir Banim neighborhood in Shefla. According to demonstrators, Alon has allowed his political opinions to affect his policy.
The IDF spokesperson responded to the protest, saying it "strongly condemns efforts to establish a connection between military officers and their political considerations and to involve their families."The protest outside Alon's house is outrageous and casts a shadow on its cause. The claims made by demonstrators at his home can be presented in an orderly fashion and without interference in the general's personal life."
