A blatantly illegal mission for the army
Protéger les colonies illégales, une mission illégale
Sometimes it seems there’s no limit to the corruption tainting the Israel Defense Forces’ operations in the settlements.
Haaretz’s Chaim Levinson reported on Tuesday that during Passover a group of reservists was assigned to guard homes at an illegal outpost known as “Booster,” adjacent to the settlement of Negohot. Not only has a demolition order been issued against all the temporary structures at the site, but during Passover the homes were empty anyway because their occupants had gone to their parents’ for the holiday. Thus the soldiers found themselves guarding illegal property instead of celebrating the holiday at home.
