Young woman arrested, not allowed to take two-month old infant with her

Tuesday, April 3, 11:27 Two police detectives arrived this morning at a young family’s home in Kiryat Moshe, Jerusalem. The detectives presented an arrest warrant for the wife, who is suspected of entering Homesh illegally five years ago, and demanded that she immediately come with them to the K’far Saba courthouse. Homesh is one of the communities destroyed in the Expulsion from Gush Katif and the northern Shomron in 2005. The detectives refused to allow the woman to take her two-month old infant with her and demanded that she get into the police car so that they could take to the courthouse in K’far Saba where a deliberation will take place on her case.
The surprised couple requested that at least the wife be able to take her little two-month old son with her. After the policemen refused their request the couple attempted to contact more senior officials in the police in order to explain the necessity of the matter. Their attempts lasted more than two hours, during which time the policemen remained in their apartment.
The request fell on deaf ears. In the end the infant’s maternal grandmother was forced to take the infant and follow the police car in a taxi from Jerusalem to K’far Saba.
