Sunday, August 23, 2015, 10:57 After Shabbat, on the night of Saturday, August 22, and on the following morning, the police served administrative orders to nine youths in communities throughout Yehuda and Shomron. In early August three administrative detention orders and three administrative orders for complete house arrest or house arrest at night, including bans on entering Yehuda and Shomron, were issued to a total of six youths. On Thursday, August 20 a 14 year old Jerusalem resident was served an administrative order limiting his movement. Thus the total number of administrative orders issued since the incident in Kfar Duma on the night of Thursday, July 30 is 16. No evidence has been presented and not even one trial has been held. Honenu attorneys have already filed appeals and counter-claims against some of the orders. Honenu has reached the conclusion that: The system is in hysterics.
The specifics of each of the nine administrative orders mentioned above is not yet known to Honenu’s staff. All of the orders include a ban on making contact with particular friends and a ban on entering certain regions. Most of the orders include house arrest at least at night. Below are some of the details which Honenu’s staff has been able to obtain.
On the night of Saturday August 22, after Shabbat, a youth from Ramat HaSharon and a
youth from Ma’aleh Adumim were served administrative house arrest orders, which included a ban on their entering Yehuda and Shomron. On the same night police forces raided the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva and Givat Kumi Uri in Yitzhar and issued six-month administrative house arrest orders, which are in effect only at night, to two youths, one a Bat Ayin resident and the other an Alon Shevut resident. They are also not allowed to stay in Yehuda and Shomron other than in their respective parents’ homes. One of them is also banned from entering Jerusalem.
On the morning of Sunday, August 23 policemen served a Geulat Tzion (Shilo Bloc) resident with an administrative order banning him from entering Yehuda and Shomron for a year. He is a married father of two children and according to the order he will be forced to be under house arrest at night at his parents’ house. Administrative orders were served also to a minor from Yad Binyamin (not far from Ashdod, not to be confused with the Binyamin region) currently living at an outpost in the Binyamin region, to an adult from Kiryat Arba currently living in the Binyamin region, and to a youth residing in Michmash in the Binyamin region. A minor residing in Amona was served an order placing him under complete house arrest.
Honenu stated: “The system is under unprecedented pressure to find suspects and is using unacceptable means against Jews in cases where no evidence implicating them has been presented. We are witness to a sharp rise in the number and severity of administration orders issued to Jews. The orders severely violate the rights of those who receive them.”
