IDF takes apart another illegal 'Palestinian' outpost

It is no coincidence that these things consistently happen on the Sabbath. The IDF was called into action again on Saturday to remove an illegal 'Palestinian' outpost called al-Manatir near Shchem (Nablus).
The IDF on Saturday forcibly evicted 150 to 200 Palestinians who had erected two large white tents and seven or eight metal huts outside of the village of Burin, near Nablus.
Photos posted on Twitter and Facebook showed security forces shooting tear gas, and using pepper spray against the activists. The IDF said that when soldiers arrived at the site, Palestinians attacked them with stones.
The event was organized in part by the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee, which had also tried to set up tents on an E1 hilltop, in an unbuilt area of the Ma’aleh Adumim settlement. The tents are part of a new movement by Palestinians to claim areas of the West Bank.
Saturday’s eviction of the site outside Burin that the Palestinians called Al-Manatir set forth a chain of events that lasted until it got dark and involved the IDF, Border Police and settlers from Yitzhar and Har Bracha.
There were also 'internationals' involved in the incident. It sounds like we need to do a better job of keeping them out of the area. If we can order 'violent settlers' to stay out of Judea and Samaria, why can't we keep the 'internationals' out as well?
