Jewish settlers stone police

2012-12-28 21:04

Jerusalem - Stone-throwing Jewish settlers drove off Israeli security forces sent to dismantle buildings at a wildcat settler outpost near the West Bank city of Ramallah on Friday, Israeli media said.

Army radio said that five border policemen were lightly wounded by rocks and one "right-wing activist" was arrested.

A military spokesperson said that a combined force of soldiers and police were sent to clear intruders from the Oz Zion outpost which was declared off-limits to civilians after buildings there were repeatedly demolished in the past by authorities and rebuilt by activists.

She had no knowledge of casualties or arrests and the border police spokesperson made no comment.

The radio said that about 250 activists took part in the clash, in which security forces responded with stun grenades before withdrawing from the site, as the Jewish Sabbath began at sunset.

The website of Haaretz daily said that a renewed attempt to clear the outpost was likely after sundown on Saturday when the Sabbath ends.

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.

      The international community have no legitimacy to delare on this dispute. In the words of that famous statesman, Mugabe - They can go hang.

    The international community considers settlements illegal, seriously, when the world thought the Earth was flat or that the Sun revolved around the Earth didn't make it fact, it just showed how ignorant the 'world' really was and still is. If Arabs can live in Israel, I don't see why Jews can't live in the West Bank.

      Comparing an opinion about the make up of the universe and written statutes is pure lunacy! Si if the law says that stealing is illegal(fact), your addled brain will interpret that as just being an opinion. What a tosser!

      Fidel, you sidestep the chicken and focus only on the salad, as usual. If non-Jewish Arabs can live in Israel, then Jews can live in the West Bank. Especially since the status of the West Bank is under dispute and none have overriding legitimacy until a negotiated settlement is reached.

    Maybe some people should stop commenting on the internet before they remove all doubt of their ignorance in front of the International Community.... Governments have forever removed illegal informal settlers all over the world... Most recently in the NEW SA as well. Maybe you should take a page out of the Zionists bible. I believe it says something about a splinter and an eye....
