      Large police forces – including Yassam special police – swooped down on the tiny community of Ramat Migron north of Jerusalem Tuesday morning and demolished three structures there.

      The initial report was transmitted by Tatzpit, a nationalist information agency which monitors and documents events in Judea and Samaria.

      Unlike other demolitions that are usually carried out by bulldozers, the police forces reportedly wrecked the three structures themselves by using 5-kg. hammers.

      The Honenu NGO that assists Jewish nationalist suspects said that one resident was arrested on suspicion of holding a slingshot. Ten residents were reportedly detained, and police cleared out all of the residents, saying that the area was declared a closed military zone.

      Police have raided Ramat Migron for demolitions in the past, including an August raid.
