IDF Dismantles Illegal Arab Tent Village in E1

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

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.

Police Evacuate Arab Provocateurs from E1

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

During the early hours of Sunday morning, the Israeli police successfully managed to evacuate, without violence, 100 Arab activists/provocateurs who entered the E1 area between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim and set up an illegal tent camp, claiming the area as a new Arab village.

The government’s plan to evacuate the activists on Friday was derailed by an Israeli Supreme Court injunction.

500 policemen took part in the evacuation on Sunday morning.

Due to the court’s injunction, the police left the tent city up, while the State explained to the court that the sole purpose of the tent camp was to create an international incident.

It’s unclear how it happened that the Israeli Intelligence services were completely unprepared for this provocation, as the activists had been openly talking about their plans to set up the tent city in E1 for the past week on Twitter and Facebook.
