The Israeli army declared the area a closed military zone, and prevented journalists, local and international peace activists from entering it. http://www.imemc.org/article/64871
Palestinians in the West Bank have pitched a protest camp where Israel plans to build new settlement homes. Activists erected about 20 large tents on the patch of land known as E1, between Jerusalem and the Jewish settlement of Maale Adumim. Israeli plans to build in the area drew sharp criticism by members of the international community in December. Palestinians say that building in E1 would jeopardise the contiguity of a Palestinian state. Jewish settlements in the West Bank are considered illegal under international law, though Israel disputes this. “We have set up 20 tents, and have enough equipment to stay here for a long time,” Abir Kopty, spokeswoman for the Popular Struggle Co-ordination Committee, told AFP news agency. “We are willing to stay here until we ensure the right of the [Palestinian] owners of the land to build on their lands,” she said. Hours after the group started setting up the camp, Israeli authorities issued an eviction order. However, Ms Kopty tweeted that the activists had obtained a High Court order suspending the eviction notice.
Palestinians given one hour to leave site of new Israeli settlements
Israel gives Palestinians hour to quit protest outpost AFP – The Israeli occupation administration gave Palestinian activists one hour Saturday to quit a protest camp in part of the West Bank where Israel has vowed to build new settler homes, an organiser told AFP. More than 200 activists erected a 20-tent “outpost” on Friday in the sensitive West Bank corridor east of Jerusalem where Palestinians say Israeli settlement construction would destroy the prospects of territorial contiguity for their promised state.
