Efforts by Israeli activists to establish new communities in Judea and Samaria focused on a new point in the Kiryat Araba area after the other five points were removed overnight by the police.

Activists of the Nahalah movement reported that some 10,000 Israelis arrived on Wednesday at the six new points they attempted to establish at various locations in Judea and Samaria, in a campaign they said was “a battle for the control of Area C.”

In Samaria, three points were established – at Bruchin near Highway 5, a point near Revava, and Maaleh Yonatan, named after Yoni Netanyahu, established between Barkan and Revava.

In Benyamin, two points went up. In the Kiryat Arba area, two points were established. About 700 youths and 55 families arrived at Givat Netanel, planning for a long stay.

The police and the IDF operated to block the activists and then operated throughout the night and early morning to evacuate the new posts, with the activists accusing the security forces of using violent and excessive force.

By morning, only one point remained on the ground. A total of 11 activists were arrested during the clashes.

However, Nahalah stated Thursday that they are “full of joy for the great progress that has been in recent days when the People of Israel revealed its immense love to settle all over the country and left its house despite the difficulty and checkpoints and reached the mountains, demanding the government allow new settlements to be established.”
