No reports of clashes at Maoz Esther, named for terror victim Esther Galia

A large contingent of security forces evacuated several residents living in illegal structures in the West Bank outpost of Maoz Esther early Wednesday. A cement building was dismantled as well, according to settler accounts.

Settlers reported shortly after midnight on Tuesday that “a large force” had arrived in the outpost, near the Kochav Hashahar settlement, to dismantle several buildings in the area. There were no reports of clashes.

There was one family and several right-wing activists living in the illegal structures, according to Walla News.

Maoz Esther has been repeatedly demolished and rebuilt since its founding in 2007 in memory of Esther Galia, who was shot and killed by terrorists while on her way home to Kochav Hashahar. (© 2012 THE TIMES OF ISRAEL 08/08/12)
