Border Police and Civil Administration forces on Monday morning demolished six buildings that were illegally built in the Baladim outpost and six additional illegally constructed buildings in the "Maoz Esther" outpost.

Both outposts are located in the Binyamin region of ​​Area C.

The forces reportedly demolished several family homes, synagogues and about eight other buildings. One of the residents barricaded himself in his home and the forces have been unable to evacuate him to this point.

Reports from the scene indicate that one of the families, a young couple, who had just been married about a week and a half ago, were violently evacuated from their home. Another couple with a baby about two weeks old were evicted from their home as well.

About 13 detainees have so far been reported to the Honenu legal aid organization. Lawyers from the organization are assisting the detainees.
