Israeli settlers in the West Bank hurriedly built three new settlement outposts overnight Thursday as retaliation for the deaths of three teenagers abducted in Gush Etzion last month.

The settlers built a new neighborhood, Talmei Haim, which is meant to be a part of the settlement of Kiryat Arba. The other outpost is known as Ramat Hashlosha, which was built adjacent to the Palestinian village of Tzurif.

The third outpost is known as Tekoa H., near the settlement of Tekoa.
