On Wednesday night (January 4), the Judea and Samaria District of the Israel Police delivered administrative restraining orders signed off by GOC Central Command, Major General Avi Mizrahi, based on recommendations of the ISA, to twelve activists for periods ranging from three months up to nine months.
The orders follow the culmination of information recently gathered by the ISA, according to which the group of extremists has been involved in leading, directing and executing violent and clandestine activity targeting Palestinian residents of Judea and Samaria and security forces operating in the area, therefore endangering lives and disrupting public order.

It should be noted that the issuing of these orders derives from a specific security necessity, and after exhausting all other alternatives. These orders are a preventative measure to remove the threat by the activists in the area.
