A new illegal Israeli settlement outpost

By Mazin Qumsiyeh

A new Israeli colonial outpost appeared near the colonies of Nokdim, Tekoa and Kfar El-David in the past few weeks.  The new outpost consists of several caravans and semi-permanent structures in a valley to the east of the El-David colonial settlement.  It sits on land belonging to people from Jib Atheib, Zaatara, and Dawahra.  We toured the site October 1, 2010 with locals Hassan Breijiya and Mubarak Zawahra and two international observers from EAPPI.  This video summarizes the situation in the area.

Israeli settlers set fire to a mosque in Beit Fajjar near Bethlehem.  This comes after a series of such attacks in which settler's promised to respond to the government move to curb settlements or on any international support for Palestinian rights by a policy of exacting "price tags".
