|Israelis evacuated from Amona outpost move into new illegal settlement||Ma`an - A little over a year after the illegal Amona outpost was evacuated by the Israeli government, 25 Israeli settler families from Amona moved into their new homes in the illegal Amichai settlement -- the first official Israeli-government sanctioned settlement to be built in the occupied West Bank in 25 years.
Israeli media reported on Monday that the settlers would inaugurate their homes in an official ceremony on Monday.
The Amona outpost -- which, like other settlement outposts, are illegal both under international and Israeli law -- was slated for demolition following a 2008 Israeli Supreme Court decision, after eight Palestinians from neighboring villages successfully petitioned to remove the outpost on grounds that the construction was carried out on privately owned Palestinian land. Israeli news website Ynet reported that that the settlement is set to be home to 1,100 families in the future. [bz]||27/3/2018|

preparation for the outpost. About two weeks later, on February 18,
settlers attacked family members while they were planting olive
trees on their land. Though the settlers were attackers, it was 12
members of the Aida family who were subsequently arrested by the
arriving Israeli soldiers. After these preliminaries, on March 5
settlers arrived with a crane and trucks, to install four mobile
homes on the land, plant a sign with the new settlement outpost`s
Hebrew name - “Havat Mevasere” - and festoon everything with
numerous Israeli national flags. Incidentally, the settlers
destroyed all that were left of the Aida Family`s olive saplings.
Dozens of fully armed Israeli soldiers and private security guards
made sure that family members would not be able to intervene.[ak]||6/3/2018|
