  • Description

    Israeli soldiers on Sunday (2 March) evicted about 50 would-be Jewish squatters who attempted an unauthorised settlement halfway between Jerusalem and Jericho on the occupied west bank of Jordan.

    The group,almost all of them members of a religious group which believes that all of the biblical land of Israel belongs to the Jewish people and should be open to settlement, offered only passive resistance when the soldiers broke into their make shift huts at Ma'ale Adumin. The squatters were only in possession of the land for a few hours.

    The area has already been earmarked for industrial development, but not farming, by the Israeli Government. It has promised to consider the squatters' request.

    Similar attempts last spring and summer, in different parts of the territory, were broken up by the army at Government orders.
