After more than 24 hours of attempting to evacuate Amona, the illegal West Bank outpost, forces have entered into renewed clashes with some of the outpost's residents who have barricaded themselves into the settlement's synagogue in protest over the evacuation.

According to police, forces have tried to negotiate with the residents for many hours to no avail and started breaking into the synagogue around noon on Thursday. Settlers attacked police personnel with rocks, fire extinguishers and other means they had prepared in advance.

Several police officers were lightly injured as a result. Forces have reportedly started using tear gas to disperse the settlers.
