Dozens of Palestinian Authority Arabs re-entered a demolished outpost near Jerusalem and started to rebuild it, the Bethlehem-based Maan news agency reported.
The illegal outpost, which Arabs have named al-Karamah (Dignity), was established last Friday near the PA Arab village of Beit Iksa, located between the Ramot and Mevasseret Zion neighborhoods of Jerusalem.
On Saturday, the Arabs who set up the outpost said they planned to erect more tents in the outpost, as well as finish the construction of a small mosque in the encampment.
The Arabs have said that the reason for the outpost is the fact that Beit Iksa is set to be entirely encircled by Israel's border fence, cutting it off from Jerusalem.
Israeli authorities ordered the confiscation of 124 acres of the village's land three weeks ago, and do not permit any new building in the town, they claimed.
The Civil Administration on Sunday night issued eviction orders for the illegal outpost and it was demolished without incident on Monday morning.
On Friday, the Arabs re-entered the outpost and performed the weekly prayer, before re-erecting tents and planting olive trees, witnesses told Maan.
Al-Karamah was set up a week after Arab activists set up an illegal outpost in the E1 area, which connects Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim, and that was just recently opened to construction for Israelis.

Particular reason why you can only post stuff from this “Arutz Sheva” place?
I can and do post articles and clips from other sources. But mostly I prefer Arutz7 because it has the sort of news that interests me. If you aren’t interested, you can always post something that you prefer. If I lose interest in Arutz7 articles, or find something I like better, I will do the same.
Or maybe you are just trying to score some traffic.
Are you aware of how many times you have tried to drive traffic towards Arutz Sheba?
I don’t know what that is, and I don’t care. I like posting from A7. Period. I used to like AOL news and posted a lot from there, but then they joined up with Huffpost. I really don’t have a lot of time to go trawling for news, so it’s convenient to find what I want in one place. If you think there’s a problem, talk to the mods about it.
Why? I'm perfectly capable of talking to you about it.
OK. You’ve already said that I have ulterior motives for posting from A7. I have said that I don’t. Does anything else require saying?
