19 Arrested in E-1 as PA Seeks Land Takeover

One Israeli woman and 18 Palestinian Authority resident Arabs were arrested Tuesday for attempting to build an outpost in the E-1 area. The PA has condemned Israel for planning to allow construction for Israelis at the site, and is claiming that building in the area will make travel difficult if an Arab state were created in Judea and Samaria.

The area in question is within Maaleh Adumim, a city adjacent to Jerusalem which the PA and Israel have agreed in past talks will remain part of Israel.
