Palestinian activists erected a new tent outpost northwest of Jerusalem on Friday, in protest of Israeli settlement construction plans in the area, according to Palestinian news agency Ma'an. The outpost was the second of its kind in as many weeks, and could mark a new form of Palestinian protest against Israeli settlement construction in the West Bank.

Locals said around 400 Palestinians arrived in the area, located between Beit Iksa and Lifta. They called their outpost al-Karamah, meaning (Dignity.)
