200 trailers placed in West Bank outposts since June (Haaretz/AP)
200 trailers placed in West Bank outposts since June
By Amos Harel, Haaretz Correspondent and The Associated Press

Settlers are continuing to place mobile homes and trailers in West Bank outposts
and settlements, without legal permits. Civil Administration reports show that
since the start of the second Lebanon war in July, some 200 mobile homes have
been placed. This is a substantial increase over the few dozen trailers placed
in the first half of the year.

Both the Israel Defefense Forces' office in charge of the West Bank and the
settlement watchdog group Peace Now disputed the claims.

Civil Administration spokesman Shlomo Dror said "there were attempts to transfer
trailers, but except for one or two we managed to stop it."

1. Peace Now: Less than 1 year since homes razed, 12 new caravans at Amona outpost
<snip>

"Amona, the opposition's symbol to the evacuation of West Bank outposts, continues to expand, according to aerial photographs carried out by Peace Now last month.

The photographs show that at least 12 new mobile homes were added to the outpost's original four homes in recent months.

Haaretz reported last week that according to defense establishment data, 200 new structures were set up in the territories without permission from the state over the past six months. Some of these were set up in illegal outposts and others in established settlements.

One of the outposts listed in the report was Amona, which is near the settlement of Ofra, north of Ramallah.

Peace Now's evidence shows that 12 new caravans were set up in addition to the four that have been at the site since August."
