Thousands, including ministers, march to illegal West Bank outpost under heavy guard

The rally, including far-right minister Ben Gvir, goes to Evyatar settlement in campaign to legalize the outpost, stretching already strained security forces

Under heavy security protection, thousands of settler activists and members of right-wing organizations, together with senior government ministers, marched to the illegal West Bank outpost of Evyatar on Monday afternoon.

Organizers said the march was to strengthen the settlement movement and to pressure the government to allow the outpost to be repopulated.

Some of the government’s most senior cabinet ministers, including National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir, participated in the march against their own government’s policy, along with four of the most senior rabbis in the religious-Zionist community.

On Sunday, security officials warned that the march to Evyatar would put more pressure on security forces already “spread thin” by the security situation in the West Bank, and the threats from other fronts.
