Israel Arm Ousts Hebron Settlers
Israeli forces have forcibly removed dozens of Jewish settlers from two houses in the West Bank town of Hebron. They have been squatting illegally for months in the buildings, in Hebron's former wholesale market. Police used heavy engineering equipment to help remove the settlers who barricaded themselves inside the buildings, welding the doors shut.The Israeli army jailed 12 soldiers for up to four weeks for refusing to take part in the operation.
