BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers from Maale Adumim east of Jerusalem set up tents Tuesday in the “E1” area in an attempt to control it, Israel's Rechet Bet radio reported.

The Maale Adumim settlement mayor Benny Kashriel arrived in the area demanding that Israeli authorities expand it into a “settlement neighborhood.”

Settlers demanded that the Israeli government respond to the killing of the three Israeli settlers, who went missing on June 12 and were found dead Monday night.

Another group of settlers seized the Gifaat Uz area near Gush Etzion settlement in southern Bethlehem.
