Three new illegal outposts in the West Bank were removed by the Israeli army.
The new civilian outposts were established Sunday by members of the right-wing Land of Israel Faithful and Youth for the Land of Israel movements, with events that included planting trees and building a sukkah. The army did not prevent the Sunday events.
Early Monday morning the Israel Defense Forces declared the areas a closed military zone and the activists evacuated peacefully. The army then destroyed the sukkot located on hilltop outposts.
The new outposts, according to a release from the IDF Spokesman’s Office were established on Sela Ridge, near the settlement of Bracha, south of Nablus; Migron Ridge near Israeli community of Migron, east of Ramallah; and Ma’alot Halhul, north of Hebron.
