Report: Police Gearing Up for Major Ulpana Assault
Arutz Sheva ^ | 18/6/12 | David Lev

Police are getting ready for a confrontation with residents and protesters in the Ulpana neighborhood. On Sunday, Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service uncovered a training plan for Border Guards and other security forces, that included drills aimed at providing troops with skills to remove men, women, and children from the Givat Ha'ulpana neighborhood of Beit El. On Monday, Ha'aretz reported that some 1,000 troops were to be provided with that training.

According to a decision by the High Court, Jewish residents of the neighborhood have until the end of the month to leave their homes. When they do, they will find themselves living in flimsy “caravillas” - essentially cheap mobile homes – while permanent housing is built for them. A plan by the government to physically move the five buildings in question off land claimed by an Arab has been called everything from brilliant to ridiculous, with many residents of the compound, as well as other right-wing activists, saying that plan is just a “fig leaf” for the complete demolition of the neighborhood.

The drills are said to be taking place at an IDF base in the Jordan Valley. Along with border police, members of the feared Yassam police unit are participating, as are a group of officers on horseback. Both groups are expected to participate in any forced removal of the Ulpana residents, ominously recalling the actions by Yassam and horseback officers at Amona several years ago.

The report said that the troops expect to be ready to act by the end of the month, and to go into action immediately when ordered to do so by the government. Any such order would be personally given by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.
