Palestinians form new West Bank protest camp

Palestinians set up tents and began work on a permanent structure in a West Bank village on Friday to protest Israel’s intention to confiscate land, an activist said.

“We pitched two tents and began building a new structure using concrete and stones in an area in Beit Iksa which Israel wants to take for settlement,” Said Yaqine told AFP.

“This action is not limited to today but will go on for several days, to declare our refusal of the Israeli decision to take the land,” he said.

Yaqine said the Israeli army recently announced it would confiscate 500 dunams (124 acres, 50 hectares) of land by the village, located on the northwestern outskirts of Jerusalem.

“The only response to this could be to create facts on the ground, like Israeli settlers do,” he said.

Activists said they were naming the village extension Bab al-Karama, Arabic for Gate of Dignity.

A spokeswoman for the Israeli army did not indicate the military would be seeking to evacuate the encampment.

“Dozens of Palestinians are rioting near Beit Iksa and erected a structure at the location,” she said. Israeli “soldiers were deployed in order to maintain the security in the area.”

During the night between Wednesday and Thursday, Israeli police dismantled a Palestinian protest camp of 24 tents set up on a controversial piece of land on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

Activists established the camp, which they dubbed Bab al-Shams, or Gate of the Sun in Arabic, in a bid to draw attention to Israeli plans to build in the area, known as E1.

West Bank tent protesters evicted

The BBC’s Wyre Davies says the eviction was relatively peaceful

Israeli police have evicted Palestinian and international activists from an area of the West Bank where Israel is planning fresh settlement building.

They had put up around 20 tents in the area called E1, between Jerusalem and the Jewish settlement of Maale Adumim.

Israel’s Supreme Court had ruled on Friday that the encampment could remain for six days.

Palestinians fear building in E1 would threaten the viability of a future Palestinian state.

They say construction in E1 will cut off East Jerusalem, claimed by Palestinians for their capital, from the rest of a putative state in the West Bank.

Abir Kopty, spokeswoman for the Popular Struggle Co-ordination Committee, a Palestinian activist group, tweeted that six people had been injured during the eviction and had been taken to hospital.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said there had been no injuries.
