Far-right activist Baruch Marzel infiltrated the home of OC Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yair Naveh in Givat Shmuel on Tuesday and asked for a room there for his daughter and son-in-law who have been evicted from the West Bank in the run-up to the planned evacuation of illegal outposts. Naveh, who has received threats in the past from right-wing elements, is accompanied by a security guard around the clock and has a guard booth at the entrance to his house. When Marzel arrived at the home in the afternoon, the guard let him through after he said he came to visit Naveh's wife. Naveh was not home at the time, but the general's son opened the door and engaged in a conversation with Marzel regarding the orders issued by his father against the far-right activist's son-in-law. "My name is Baruch Marzel and your father issued a restraining order against my son-in-law and 20 others in the West Bank," the far-right activist told Naveh's 17-year-old son. He asked the youth to make room in the house for his daughter and son-in-law who needed a place to live since they were evicted from the West Bank. After several minutes, the guard at the entrance to the house identified Marzel and alerted the police who came and evacuated him from the area. In recent months, far-right activists have dispatched attack dogs on the home of a senior police officer and have burned several police cars. The IDF Spokesperson released a statement calling the incident a "clear breach of privacy."
