Israel Forces Raze Illegal Settler Outpost [View all]
(AFP) – 10 hours ago
JERUSALEM — Israeli forces razed three temporary structures comprising a wildcat settler outpost near the West Bank city of Ramallah early on Tuesday, an Israeli spokesman told AFP.
The demolition of the Oz Zion outpost was carried out by the Civil Administration, the Israeli military body which manages all civilian affairs relating to the Palestinians and their lands in the portions of the West Bank under full Israeli military and civilian control.
Civil administration spokesman Guy Inbar said that some three weeks ago troops had demolished illegal structures at the same location.
Tuesday's operation was "a recurring action to destroy illegal structures," he said, noting that it sparked minor clashes, but police said no-one was arrested.
