"There was violence when israeli police tried to evict illegal settlers on the occupied west bank."
"A group of israeli activists sat for a month then up two mobile homes in an area in the vicinity of Ramallah. Where stood the settlement of Amona who were evacuated two years ago after the country's supreme court come to the conclusion that it has been built without a permit on privately owned palestinian land."
"The activists who returned did so in protest against what they described as an increase in violent attacks by palestinians in recent times. On Thursday morning confronted the settlers by the israeli police who broke in and dragged out the activists."
"In the violence that followed threw the demonstrators stones, metal rods and oil against police who responded with tear gas. Seven people were arrested and 23 police officers were injured slightly. While three of the activists were injured in the clashes."
"the UN considers all israeli settlements on the palestinian west bank as illegal. Israel rejects this, and so late as in the last week, over 2,000 new settlements approved by the authorities."
