Police officers and IDF soldiers were attacked Monday while clearing the ruins of three illegal structures razed at the Oz Zion outpost. Twelve people were arrested including seven teenagers, for hurling stones, assaulting police officers, and violating a closed military zone order. They are being questioned by security forces.

 

Civil Administration inspectors razed structures near Beit El on Sunday night. They were met with fierce resistance by teens who hurled stones at police officers, squad cars as well as blocked roads. Police stressed that the officers wore protective gear but were not equipped with batons.

 

Relates stories:

 

The Oz Zion outpost is home to three families and somewhere between 15 to 25 women.

"The officers met our boys near Beit El and fired rubber bullets at them preventing them from reaching the outpost," one of the settlers recounted.

 

"Extra police forces surged in and managed to demolish the first two structures without meeting real resistance. Demolishing the third structure took them 45 minutes as we dug ourselves in. One lone structure, which is not under a razing order, remained."

 

The government is slated to commence a series of demolitions and evictions in a number of West Bank settlements and outposts. This will see some 85 permanent structures evacuated and 1,000 people cleared from their homes.  

 

"The fierce resistance indicates wider active resistance for future evictions of bigger outposts. People have finally realized that we won’t win unless we fight," the settler said. "This is not the disengagement, things would be different if the State exercised more equality. But it's obvious that this is about politics and we are its victims."

 

MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) said in response, "Instead of dealing with the strike and helping contract workers, pyromaniacs Bibi and Barak are fighting settlers in Judea and Samaria and fanning the flames."
