The border police are reportedly on their way to the Ulpana outpost on the outskirts of the West Bank Beit El settlement to evacuate some 15 hilltop youth who have broken into a second floor apartment in one of the empty buildings slated for removal.

It is at least the second time that hilltop youth forced their way into an empty home in Ulpana since families began to leave on Tuesday.

Thirty-two out of 33 families who lived in five apartment buildings slated for removal left peacefully on Thursday and Tuesday.

The 33rd family, Yiska and Yoel Fatal have told Defense Ministry workers that they do not want to leave their apartment.

They have done nothing to pack up their three-room home, on the top floor of a three-story buildings, with a view of Beit El and the nearby Palestinian city of Ramallah.
