Geulat Tzion evacuation injury incident update

Monday, December 24, 2018, 16:03 The discussion scheduled for Tuesday, December 25, with the Internal Affairs and Environment Committee about the violent Geulat Tzion evacuation was canceled the previous day. The woman who was injured during the violent evacuation in Geulat Tzion on November 29, was scheduled to speak before the committee and tell her story. A short discussion had been planned, during which she was going to relate how policemen partially stripped her, took her children from her and documented the entire process. The critical segment of the documentation is currently missing. See below for details.
The discussion, under the title “Violent evacuation and abuse of a family in Geulat Tzion”, was initiated by Knesset Members Shuli Moalem (Jewish Home), Nurit Koren (Likud), Merav Ben-Ari (Kulanu), and Aliza Lavie (Yesh Atid). Partial list of invitees: The Ministry of Internal Security, The Regional Council of Mateh Binyamin, representatives from Geulat Tzion, The Ministry of the Interior, The Office of the Attorney General, and Honenu.
Shortly after the incident, Honenu Attorney Menashe Yado filed a complaint with the police in the name of the injured woman under the title “Violent evacuation and extreme violation of the woman’s modesty”, demanding that an urgent investigation be opened and that the photographic documentation of the incident be located.
However when the woman arrived at the police station to submit her complaint, she was shocked to discover that the documentation which the border policemen had transferred to the Israeli Police was extremely incomplete and included only the beginning and end of the incident. The stage of the incident during which the policemen injured her was missing.
Honenu Attorney Menashe Yado: “I hope that through the committee the video clips documenting the incident will be revealed and that the discussion about what happened there will be able to start.”
