Hebron Hills community police branch closed down

Commander of the Judea and Samaria Police District, Yisrael Yitzhak, announced Wednesday his decision to close down the community police branch of the south Hebron Hills due to recent acts of sabotage on police units by Jewish residents of the communities in the area. Earlier in the day, residents threw paint at a police vehicle there. The police emphasized, however, that despite the decision to close the branch, police services will continue as normal, and that the police would continue to loyally serve the community.
