The Border Guard stated that the teens attempted to ignite a fire in a nearby field and tried to block the road, but when security forces arrived at the scene, dispersing them with among other things, stun grenades, they dispersed and the road once again opened to traffic within a short period of time.
Itai Zar of Havat Gilad denied the report and said that "there was reliable information claiming that the Border Guard intended to carry out demolitions on the hill.
Many residents were called to the scene and there was a confrontation at the entrance, because of the abnormal number of Border Guard officers who entered the outpost. There were a few stun grenades which caused one of the women to panic. We are trying to calm the atmosphere not ignite it further."
After attempts to block the road ended, the teens moved on to the Ephraim Spatial Brigade base near Kdumim, where they called on the soldiers to refuse to obey orders and called out against the government and the expected eviction.
The protestors were singing and dancing at the gates of the base. Police maintained order at the scene.
