Youths Leave Outpost at Sabbath's End
Arutz Sheva ^ | 29/12/12 | Gil Ronen

Posted on 12/29/2012 1:45:29 PM PST by Eleutheria5

Dozens of youths who stayed at the Oz Tzion outpost near Beit El over the Sabbath, left the community after the Saturday evening havdala prayer. The youths spent the Sabbath at the outpost along with Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, the Rabbi of Tzfat, and Rabbi Dov Lior of Kiryat Arba.

The two rabbis had driven to nearby Ofra Friday, to negotiate an agreement according to which security forces would stop trying to evict the youths, and the youths would leave voluntarily at the Sabbath's end.

The IDF was forced to stop an eviction from a Shomron outpost on Friday afternoon when locals resisted eviction. The soldiers had to retreat, but the IDF had announced that the eviction will resume on Saturday night, after Shabbat.

Large forces had arrived at the outpost, which is located in the Binyamin region, shortly before Shabbat. Local residents reported that the officers used tear gas and stun grenades to try and evict about 200 youths who erected an improvised structure and put up...tents.

Violent clashes erupted between the two sides and one person was arrested. The IDF said its forces were attacked with rocks and that five officers were lightly wounded. The eviction was halted because of the Sabbath.

Mitzpe Avihai is now trying to hold morning prayers on Hill 18, from which they were dispossessed in July. The ruins of their homes are plainly visible from my window.
