Israeli police moved into an outpost in the occupied West Bank on Wednesday to remove settlers who Israel’s Supreme Court ruled have been living illegally on privately owned Palestinian land.
Settlers and dozens of pro-settlement activists who flocked to the Amona outpost to protest against the evacuation burned tires and piled makeshift barricades at its entrance. There was no immediate violence as columns of unarmed police walked towards prefabricated homes where some 330 settlers live. Hours before the police operation, Israel announced plans for 3,000 more settlement homes in the West Bank, the third such declaration in eleven days since US President Donald Trump took office.
