Taybeh (Agenzia Fides) - A small hermitage with a chapel, built on a plot of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, near the town of Taybeh (30 kilometers north-east of Jerusalem), has been the scene in recent days of a brief occupation by some Jewish settlers, probably from the nearby settlement of Ofra. The incident occurred on Friday, April 19. The settlers were temporarily settled in the hermitage, unattended for about a year - after it was built and inhabited by a Greek-Catholic monk - and hoisted the flag of Israel. The initiative resulted in the intervention of some young Christians and Muslims of the area, who expressed their opposition to the occupation on behalf of the settlers, who moved away.

Looks like they did something stupid, then thought better of it, and corrected their mistake.
So some squatters came to an empty building and left peaceably when they found it was not empty.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
They were asked to leave, they left, not sure it's much of an issue anymore.
Sounds like the hermitage need a full-time hermit, or three.
