"Hilltop Battles" Continue


Police and IDF troops have again dismantled the Neve Tzuf outpost, near Ramallah, Friday morning. It was re-erected Thursday night, after IDF troops dismantled it a few days ago. The outpost was only established for the first time last weekend, after an Arab terrorist shot at and seriously injured two women at the location.

At the Mitzpeh Yitzhar site, in Samaria, IDF troops succeeded in their effort to demolish all of the buildings by late Thursday night, after Yesha residents put up a powerful, albeit largely non-violent, resistance. Dozens of Yesha residents slept at Mitzpeh Yitzhar Thursday night. Five of the protestors arrested Thursday remained in police custody today, with remand extensions sought by the authorities.
