(IsraelNN.com) Three members of Knesset were injured during the violent evacuation of the Amona outpost on Wednesday.

MK Effi Eitam of the National Religious Party, MK Aryeh Eldad and MK Binyamin Elon, both of the National Union party were hurt in the melee.

“In a place where MKs are beaten, democracy no longer exists,” said a statement by the National Union party.

Peace Now encouraged Acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert to evacuate every outpost. A statement by the movement charged that “today’s violence is the outcome of years of lawlessness” and said all 100 outposts should be cleared in order “to solve the problem once and for all”.
