Three police were injured Wednesday night while attempting to evacuate an illegally constructed building in the Yissa Bracha outpost near the Mitzpe Yericho settlement in the West Bank.

Police razed three buildings in the West Bank outpost Wednesday night deemed illegally built.

At least three officers encountered one man on top of a roof of one of the buildings marked for demolition, who refused to step down.

While attempting to forcibly remove the man, the roof collapsed underneath them, injuring three officers lightly.
