Police evacuated early Sunday morning a protest tent compound set up by Palestinian activists in the controversial E1 area of the West Bank. 

The activists erected the tents on Wednesday in time for US President Barack Obama's visit to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian Authority has said that E1 land which lies between Jerusalem and the Ma'aleh Adumim settlement is needed so the future Palestinian state will be viable and have territorial continuity. It warned that Israeli construction there imperils the two-state solution.
