Settlers charged that Palestinians on Monday night burned down a tent in a fledgling outpost Alei Ayen, that is located near the Shilo settlement in the Binyamin region.
The tent was used to store equipment and gas balloons. The outpost was first erected two years ago and is home who a couple and a number of young adults who farm the area.
Two months ago, the civil administration destroyed the site because it was illegally constructed. Settlers had since rebuilt it, but have charged that the civil administration's actions emboldened the Palestinians to attack the site and that they have been attempting to destroy it ever since.
