“Despite the great indignation I felt from the attack on me, I know that most in the communities of Judea and Samaria are outstanding people who disapprove of these actions. Some are even my good friends,” Ephraim Brigade Commander Colonel Ran Kahane said on Wednesday (December 14).

On Monday night, dozens of right-wing activists infiltrated the Ephraim Regional Division Headquarters, setting fire to tires and damaging vehicles with stones, bottles of paint and by placing nails on the road. IDF (Zahal) forces, together with the Israel Police, expelled the rioters from the base.
 
In addition, rocks were thrown at Col. Kahane’s vehicle.
Col. Kahane said that the right-wing activists who acted violently represented an “extremist minority” and that “we will continue our mission to protect the communities of Judea and Samaria.”
