Border Police destroy settler homes
Synagogue also razed in unauthorized outpost Mitzpe Avihai.

Thats my son! Leave him alone! screamed Osnat Nahum at the border policemen who were preparing to drag Elyashiv, 17, away from the site of the unauthorized Mitzpe Avihai outpost early Thursday morning.

As a policeman sought to grab hold of the wriggling teen, Nahum bent over her son, who was stretched out on the ground, and tried to pull him away from the police.


The outpost was first erected a year and a half ago. It has since been destroyed more than six times.

Police said they had arrived at Mitzpe Avihai to destroy the outpost at 2:30 a.m. Dozens of police officers, including border patrolmen and members of the YASAM anti-riot unit, moved into the area. Once the officers arrived on the scene, the demolition took around two hours to complete.

The police demolished six wooden structures four family homes, one structure housing singles, and a synagogue.
