West Bank settlers from Mitzpe Avichai criticized the manner in which they were evacuated from the outpost overnight Thursday. "Tonight Defense Minister Ehud Barak created the next generation of 'price tag' activists," one of the settlers told Ynet.

Evacuation of Mitzpe Avichai


No unusual events were reported during the eviction of the outpost, and security forces remained deployed in the area to prevent altercations. The illegal outpost of Mitzpe Avichai, located near Hebron, has been demolished by security forces in the past, but residents rebuilt it.


"I was awoken at two in the morning by the sounds of barking dogs and knocks on the door," recalled Ziva Davis, who lived in the outpost along with her husband and their three children. "I asked 'who's there?' as they were breaking into the house. They gave us a few minutes to get organized. Our neighbors were ordered to leave their homes while they were still in their pajamas. They kept yelling 'get out, get out,'" she said, adding that her property was damaged during the evacuation.


"It's a horrible experience; I felt as though my soul was being invaded," Davis said. "You see a well-oiled system of robots - the defense minister's mercenaries - and you wonder what has become of our country. People take pity on migrants but not on Jews."


Another Mitzpe Avichai resident, who asked to remain anonymous, told Ynet "Tonight Barak created the next generation of 'price tag' activist. When you send soldiers to evacuate children in the middle of a cold night, don't be surprised at the kind of adults they'll turn out to be."
