Saturday, January 5, 2019, 18:41 Kochav HaShahar residents have complained that the
police are preventing them from going to the protest in Jerusalem. Police and GSS forces have blocked the exit to Kochar HaShahar and are checking every vehicle leaving, questioning the passengers and harassing residents. Security forces have also set up a check point at an intersection near Kochar HaShahar and are checking every car whose passengers are on their way to the protest.
A mass demonstration is planned for tonight (Saturday) opposite the residence of the Prime Minister in Jerusalem in protest of the detention by the GSS of three minors from Yehuda and Shomron. Rabbis, public figures, heads of councils and residents of Yehuda and Shomron (Yosh) are expected to participate in protest of the heavy-handed conduct of the GSS with youth from Yosh.
The demonstrators will demand that Prime Minister Netanyahu, the official directly in charge of the GSS, stop the unrestrained conduct of agents in the Jewish Department of the GSS, stop the practice of imposing orders on minors forbidding them to meet with an attorney, and stop the use of injurious, humiliating methods of interrogation on minors, such as those revealed on the Israeli Uvda investigative and current affairs program.
The organizers of the demonstration announced: “In no other region of the country would law enforcement authorities allow themselves to raid a classroom in the middle of a class, detain a student in a display of force and impose draconian orders on him. The residents of Yosh have rights too!”
