The Parks Division of the Civil Administration in conjunction with the District Coordinator's office and the Samaria brigade removed the Palestinian flagpole at Sebastia upon which a PLO flag had illegally been hung this morning.

The Sebastia site, considered to be the site of the ancient city of Samaria, is situated in area C under Israeli civil and military control and therefore the flag constitutes trespassing and illegal use of land.

This is the third time the flag was removed and now the flagpole has been removed as well.

Military sources report that today there is no fixed presence at the site as the army requires the site to be open to army access at all times.
