A group of 15 young far-right activists arrived at the IDF´s Judea
and Samaria Division at Beit El, in the West Bank on Friday. The
youths came to protest plans by the IDF to evacuate outposts, and
tried to carry out a disturbance, police said.
Nine youths entered the base, and were arrested by IDF guards for
trespassing. A Judea and Samaria police unit arrive on the scene, and
took the youths to a local police station for questioning.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
The incident came just four days before the Ulpana outpost on the
outskirts of Beit El was scheduled to be razed, pending a government
appeal to the High Court to delay the demolition by 90 days.
In December, right-wing activists broke into the IDF´s Ephraim
Brigade headquarters in the West Bank, burning tires, spreading nails
on the road and throwing stones at vehicles.
The activists were demonstrating against the evacuation of the Ramat
Gilad settlement. (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post 04/27/12)
