Hundreds of people arrived at the Homesh outpost on Sunday morning in response to the murder of yeshiva student Yehuda Dimentman last Thursday night by Arab terrorists.

Dimentman died after being shot in the neck and two other people were wounded. He left behind a widow and a ten-month-old baby boy. People are calling for the legalization of the settlement and its yeshiva in response to the attack.

The IDF spokesman’s office claimed that the protestors engaged in acts of violence against security forces, broke through checkpoints that were set up in the area, and entered the evacuated settlement area in an effort to try illegally build new structures on the site.

IDF, Border Police, and regular police tried to block the people from getting close to Homesh and say that the protestors hurled verbal abuse at them and that they vandalized military property and blocked the passage of security forces. In addition, an IDF fighter was slightly injured as a result of being hit by one of the protestors.

The IDF condemns any manifestation of violence against security forces and states that it will act “decisively in relation to any attempt to harm the members of the security forces who fulfil their role of maintaining the security of Israeli citizens.”
