REPORT: Many Jewis: Border Policemen Refuse Demolition Orders, Face Jail
Several Border Policemen refused to take orders to demolish a series of homes destroyed in Beit El on Wednesday, a source at the scene stated to Arutz Sheva, and will now likely face jail time for their loyalty to the residents.
“We met here many religious Border Police troops and policemen […] religious people for whom it’s very hard to do this job,” the Director of Religious Services in Beit El, David Nazri, stated Wednesday. Nazri has spent the past three days at the site of the Draynoff Houses, which have been a focal point for clashes between Beit El residents and security forces.
“I personally met a border policeman who refused [orders], there are many who refused and I know were sent to serve a 30-day prison sentence,” he said. “The border policeman told me they sent a psychologist to convince [the soldiers to take orders], but many [refused and] went to jail [anyway].”
Hundreds of Border Police and Israel Police officers are currently still in Beit El, Nazri reported from the scene.
