Israeli Liquidate Jewish Settlements in Palestine

Israeli soldiers started liquidation of several illegal Jewish settlements on the West Bank Wednesday morning. This is done in accordance with the command of Israeli Minister of Defense, Benjamin Ben-Eliezer. In accordance with the defense minister’s plans, Israeli soldiers will remove from 20 to 30 settlements. Two settlements in the region Ariel-Kedumim and one more to the north of Ramallah have been already destroyed today. However, this time soldiers met no people in the settlements, as they left the places before the action. This was done in accordance with Ben-Elizer’s schedule which supposes that desert settlements will be liquidated first, and then caravans with few people. Majority of Israelis, mostly leftists, think that West Bank and Gaza Strip Jewish settlements are illegal as they are built on Palestinian territories and at the same time constantly intensify tension. And the rights, on the contrary, say that the settlements are outposts due to which defence of the Israeli territories is maintained. As a result of long-lasting disputes, it was decided to liquidate settlements which are of smaller size and situated far from others.

However, head of the colony council of Judea, Samaria and  Gaza Strip Adi Minz already said that he would press for abolishment of the decision and “use all democratic instruments for this.” Settlers remind Sharon of his election pledges when he promised not to liquidate the settlements, the reason why people voted for him. People say, they will act differently at the next elections, and already now going to promote the candidature of Benjamin Netanjahu to the prime minister post, who is considered a reliable person to trust.
