Security forces on Tuesday night evacuated two unauthorized outposts in Kiryat Arba, near the West Bank City of Hebron, the Federman Farm and Givat Avichai, also known as Hill 18. The Federman Farm was demolished a year ago and recently the family of right-wing activist Noam Federman has been slowly returning to the site. Last night police were surprised to find only a tent full of equipment, Army Radio reported. The five youths who were at Givat Avichai when security forces arrived did not resist the evacuation and confiscation of two huts and electricity equipment. MK Michael Ben-Ari (National Union) slammed the move, saying, "Today it is becoming apparent that the Netanyahu government is more dangerous to the settlement movement that Tzipi Livni. Netanyahu and Barak continue to sow destruction in the settlement movement while showing blatant scorn for the Likud members who voted for Bibi and Lieberman and was rewarded with the uprooting of outposts."
