Israeli forces evacuate two more outposts


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli security forces evacuated two West Bank outposts.

Police and civil administration forces removed structures from two outposts near Hebron early Wednesday morning.

At the Federman Farm outpost, which has been evacuated in the past, security forces dismantled one tent, which was the sole structure. Last year four homes were torn down on the site.

At Givat 18, two huts were dismantled and six yeshiva students were ejected from the site. People began rebuilding the outpost several hours later, according to reports. Police came back later Wedesday and demolished a shed being constructed on the site.  

The evacuations come a week after security forces evacuated the Maoz Esther outpost, removing seven huts and several people living there. The outpost has been rebuilt, according to Ynet.
