In the West Bank, the Israeli Army Works for the Settlers

The military declared an illegal outpost named 'Uri's farm' a closed military zone. Citizen Uri is apparently so important that the colonel wakes up early for him and soldiers are busy enforcing a military order signed for him

Col. Udi Tzur, commander of the Jordan Valley Brigade, had something very urgent to do at 6 A.M. last Tuesday. He signed an order to declare a certain area a closed military zone (prohibiting people from entering and staying), by dint of his authority as a military commander in the West Bank. On the printed order, accompanied by a map, as required, the closed military zone was cited explicitly as “Uri’s Farm.” The closure was in force from 8 A.M. until 8 P.M., and didn’t apply to those whom the commander allows to stay there.
