Watch: Bennett and Shaked verbally attacked by Ofra residents
Ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked arrived in Ofra on Saturday evening in order to discuss the Regulation Law with the leaders of the settlement. When they were leaving Ofra, they were verbally attacked by residents who hurled insults at them following the Amona evacuation. “We chose you guys to fight,” yelled the residents. “Not for you guys to surrender to Bibi, this is not why we voted for you guys. You guys should be ashamed.”
Yesterday, JOL News reported that Shaked responded to the Amona evacuation in an interview with Channel 2 News. During the interview, Shaked claimed that Bennett never misled Amona residents in regard to the evacuation.
