In an attempt to stop authorities from carrying out the demolition, settlers blocked routes leading to the outpost and threw rocks at approaching forces.

In March, a violent clash between police and settlers at the Givat Ronen outpost in Samaria erupted during a police arrest operation.

Police said that suspects hurled rocks at a patrol car, causing extensive damage, and punctured the car’s tires. Officers were also pelted with rocks during the incident.

Police sprayed pepper spray in response. A back-up police force that arrived on the scene was also targeted with rocks.

Police arrested nine people for assaulting cops and interfering with a police officer.
