News Brief

Several thousand settlers and their supporters demonstrated opposite the prime minister’s residence in Jerusalem on Sunday night to protest the planned dismantling of settler outposts in the West Bank. The protest, organized by a group of young activists called the Next Generation, indicates grass-roots opposition to the further dismantling of settlements as final-status negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority are set to begin. Meretz and Peace Now activists held a counterdemonstration.
