Jewish settlers return to West Bank home 13 years after disengagement

Under cover of darkness, approximately 200 Jewish settlers, accompanied by Bayit Hayehudi MKs Betzalel Smotrich and Shuli Moalem-Refaeli, returned to the settlement of Sanur in the northern West Bank. The settlement was evacuated as part of the 2005 disengagement from Gaza, which also included four Jewish settlements in the Samaria region of the West Bank.

"Nothing is better than realizing the true and clear desire to return," said Smotrich.

"After one understandings that a mistake was make, it needs to be corrected," he added, referring to the disengagement. "We are coming today to express that desire. We are presenting this idea to the prime minister, the defense minister, and the rest of the members [of Knesset]: our message is that we need to fix this."
