WATCH: U.S. Jewish Activists’ West Bank Protest Camp Trashed By IDF

Israeli forces tore through a West Bank protest camp set up by U.S Jewish activists on Saturday, according to a report in the Times of Israel.

The camp, called Sumud, was set up on the site of a Palestinian village near Hebron, which was forcibly evacuated in 1999. According to the Times of Israel, 60 diaspora Jews were present at the camp when soldiers arrived, along with twenty Palestinians and ten Israelis. The soldiers tore down tents and struggled with demonstrators, but made not arrests.
