The West Bank Occupied

 Thousands of Israeli settlers have attempted to set up new illegal settlement outposts in six locations across the occupied West Bank. The event was organised by the Nachala settler movement, which says that its goal is “to establish new communities in Judea and Samaria,” using the Hebrew name for the occupied West Bank.

Groups of Israeli youth and families arrived at the earmarked locations in buses, on foot and in vehicles throughout Wednesday, bearing Israeli flags and camping tents under the protection of the Israeli army and police. They gathered in locations near the occupied West Bank cities of Ramallah, Salfit and Hebron.

The Israeli settlers were allowed to spend the night at the locations but the majority of the encampments were removed by Thursday, according to Israeli media reports. Israeli forces blocked roads and set up checkpoints for Palestinians across entrances to towns and villages.
