    Background: YAMIT, SINAI, EL BIREH, WEST BANK

    Israeli troops and police are continuing to evict settlers from the Sinai in preparation for the final evacuation of Israeli troops in April. On Friday (19 March) they took up positions outside the Mediterranean town of Yamit to demolish three buildings which had been secretly erected by Israeli settlers opposed to the withdrawal from the Sinai. Later the troops searched the nearby area for settlers and carried several people off to waiting trucks. Inside Yamit itself, Israeli women staged a noisy protest against troops but were eventually herded away and a further group were carried off into waiting vehicles. The Sinai is to be handed back to Egypt under the terms of the Camp David agreement. On the West Bank, the mayor of El Bireh, Ibrahim Tawil, on Friday (19 March) strongly criticised Israeli policies in the West Bank. The mayor and his town council were suspended for not cooperating with Israel's civilian administration for the West Bank.
