Israel razes settler outpost structures

2012-05-17 11:11

Jerusalem - Israeli forces demolished two structures in the Oz Zion and Ramat Migron settlement outposts in the West Bank, prompting clashes that saw six people arrested, a police spokesperson said.

"One building was evacuated in Oz Zion and as a result there were disturbances, six people were arrested for disorderly conduct and entering a closed military zone," Micky Rosenfeld said.

"In Ramat Migron one empty building was evacuated and everything was taken out. There were no incidents there," added Rosenfeld.

Illegal structures in both outposts, which are near the West Bank Bank city of Ramallah, have routinely been built without government permission by settlers and then demolished by Israeli forces.

Ramat Migron is adjacent to Migron, the oldest and biggest outpost in the West Bank which is slated to be evacuated by 1 August under the terms of a Supreme Court decision.

Israel considers settlement outposts built without government approval to be illegal and often sends security personnel to demolish them. They usually consist of little more than a few trailers.

The international community considers all settlements built in the West Bank - including east Jerusalem - to be illegal.
