Israeli security forces have begun removal of the illegal Arab tent encampment in E1, the area between Maaleh Adumim and Jerusalem.
Last week, Israel security forces were taken by surprise by an Arab initiative to try to illegally settle on the E1 location, and create facts on the ground.
At the time, the Israeli Supreme Court blocked the removal of the sham village, but eventually allowed Israel to evacuate the provocateurs, but not touch the tents.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court accepted the State’s position that the E1 tent village was illegal, and rejected the Arab claim that it was a temporary “tourist initiative” that would stay until May.Jewish Press News Briefs
