News Brief

Israel warned its citizens against trying to re-enter an evacuated West Bank settlement. The army on Saturday issued a statement warning Israelis that they could be jailed for two years if they try to enter access Homesh, one of four West Bank settlements evacuated in 2005 along with Gaza Strip settlements. The announcement came amid rumors that a group of settlers would try to bypass Israeli military patrols and enter Homesh on Monday, possible intending to set up homes in time for Pesach.
