Settlers, officers hurt in outpost demolition


Six West Bank settlers and three police officers were hurt during the demolition of an illegal outpost near Jericho.

Settlers threw rocks at police early Thursday morning when they gathered at an outpost near Mitzpeh Jericho to raze six dwellings. Police responded with tear gas, Haaretz reported. Hundreds of security forces reportedly gathered at the outpost, as well as 200 outpost supporters.

The police and three settlers were injured when the roof of one of the buildings collapsed as a protester was being removed.

At least three settlers were arrested on suspicion of assaulting police officers.

A dwelling in a second outpost was removed earlier on Thursday morning, according to reports.
