Israeli settlers set up outposts near Hebron

July 4, 2014 10:02 P.M. (Updated: July 4, 2014 10:02 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli settlers set up outposts early Friday in northern Hebron, an official said.

The secretary of the Palestinian National Initiative in the town of Surif in northern Hebron told Ma'an that locals found settlers, protected by Israeli soldiers, setting up an outpost on the al-Jreinat mountain between Surif and Jabaa Friday morning.

Shihada Hmeidat said that at 2 a.m. he heard the sounds of Israeli bulldozers and vehicles that were digging until morning.

Settlers set up six caravans on the top of the mountain.

Hmeidat said that this outpost is an extension of the Gush Etzion settlement near Surif, after the Israeli minister of defense ordered building more settlements.

The lands on which the outposts were set up belong to the al-Ghneimat and al-Hur families.
