Police car firebombed during outpost demolition


An Israeli police officer’s car was firebombed during the dismantling of illegal structures at a West Bank outpost.

Six people were arrested Thursday in the attack on the car earlier in the morning, according to reports.

Some 200 Israeli soldiers and police arrived at the Alei Ain outpost near the Shiloh settlement in the northern West Bank at 3 a.m. Thursday to demolish the illegal structures.

At least 11 people were wounded in skirmishes between the two sides during the operation.

Alei Ain residents had prepared for the evacuation by blocking roads to the outpost with rocks and nails. They claim that they passively resisted the evacuation but police used excessive force, beat them and used stun grenades unnecessarily.
