Some 100 settlers clashed with security forces during the evacuation of the illegal West Bank outpost of Oz Zion in the Beit El area. A Shabbat youth meeting was scheduled to take place at the outpost in the presence of Rabbi Dov Lior.
The settlers accused the forces of using violence against them. In response, they closed the fates of the nearby Givat Assaf outpost. The fighters said the settlers had thrown stones at them. (Itamar Fleishman)
