Boys on a Hill Overlooking Havat Gilad, May 28 2012.

Havat Gilad (Gilad Farm) is an Israeli outpost in Samaria. It was established in 2002, in memory of Gilad Zar, security coordinator of the Shomron Regional Council, who was shot and killed in 2001.

This small village is on a list of outposts that Israel’s government promised the U.S. to dismantle. In fact, it has been dismantled several times, but the residents have returned and rebuilt it.

Havat Gilad is located on land which is privately owned by Moshe Zar who has been purchasing land from Palestinians since 1979. After his son Gilad was killed, Moshe vowed to build six settlements in his memory, one for each Hebrew letter of his name.
