Settlers try to rebuild illegal outpost in Hebron

Feb. 22, 2012 9:03 A.M. (Updated: Feb. 22, 2012 10:39 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma’an) – Israeli security on Tuesday prevented dozens of settlers from rebuilding an illegal outpost near Kiryat Arba east of Hebron in the southern West Bank. The outpost, Mitzpe Avihai was evacuated earlier in February.

Coordinator of a local coalition Youths Against Settlements in Hebron Issa Amr told Ma’an that the settlers have been trying to build the outpost since 2007 as an expansion to the nearby Kiryat Arba and Kharsina settlements. This expansion, he added, will separate Baqaa and Buera neighborhoods of Hebron from the city.

He highlighted that settlers who lived in the outpost were very radical and they used to organize attacks against the Palestinian residents of Baqaa and Buera neighborhoods.
