Residents of Beit El and supporters prepared Sunday to fight the eviction of 33 families from the Givat HaUlpana neighborhood. Local youth brought in used tires, good for blocking roads and also for burning, and prepared to use sandbags as well. Others prayed and studied Torah.

Supporters of the neighborhood succeeded in blocking the Begin highway in Jerusalem for a brief time. Two were arrested.
