A dozen settlers expelled from settlements

According to police, restraining orders were issued to 12 residents of the Yitzhar settlement, Israel Radio reported on Tuesday. The orders prohibit the residents, who have been involved in violent and anti-Palestinian acts in the last two years, from entering the West Bank for periods of three months to one year, according to the report.
Gershon Mesika, who heads the Samaria Regional Council, said that the serving of these orders discriminates against settlers, who, if accused of a crime, deserve to be tried like every other citizen.
