Two female right-wing activists were arrested during a clearance by security forces of an illegal settlement outpost in the West Bank.

Judea and Samaria Police, together with the Border Police and the IDF, took part in the clearance of five illegal structures and two tents at Ramat Migron.

Police said the activists entered a closed military zone despite warnings for them not to do so, and barricated themselves on a rooftop, from which they allegedly threw a paint can at security forces. "They refused to identify themselves," a police spokeswoman added. The clearance operation is now complete, the spokeswoman added.
