Border Police on Sunday evening prevented 8 settlers from attempting to rebuild the recently demolished Oz Zion outpost, Army Radio reported.

The activists reportedly were removed from the area without incident, and security forces remained on the scene to monitor the surroundings.

IDF forces early Sunday morning completed the evacuation of the illegal West Bank outpost near Beit El, at the end of a weekend that started with clashes between teenage activists and Border Police that left five officers lightly injured.

According to Army Radio, a former resident of Oz Zion said that attempts to rebuild and expand the outpost would continue on Monday.
