IDF soldiers and police forces on Friday removed an illegal structure containing Torah scrolls from the site of the former Samaria settlement of Homesh. Two right-wing activists who tried to enter the area, which had been declared a closed military zone, were arrested by Judea and Samaria Police. The Homesh Organization said the structure had been used as a study hall for four months and was destroyed without notice. The group said the structure would be rebuilt in a matter of days. The National Union called the move "severe," and said that that next government would act to restore Jewish presence to Judea and Samaria.
