Six Hurt During West Bank Outpost Demolition

Violent clashes broke out early Thursday morning as security forces attempted to dismantle the illegal Yisa Bracha outpost near the West Bank settlement of Mitzpeh Jericho.

A civil destruction crew, accompanied by officers from the Border Police and the Special Police Unit, arrived on the scene early Thursday to raze six houses. Over the course of the demolition, three settlers were arrested.

Protesting settlers hurled rocks at the security forces, who responded by firing tear gas and using batons. Three settlers were lightly wounded in the clashes with security forces.

Three police officers were also hurt, after they climbed onto a roof of one of the buildings to remove a protester who had barricaded himself there, and the roof collapsed.

A number of those wounded in the clashes were taken to Hadassah University Hospital, Mt. Scopus, in Jerusalem. Among the wounded was the son of right-wing activist Baruch Marzel, according to Channel 10.
