Police and Civil Administration forces evacuated on Thursday morning an illegal encampment with five makeshift buildings, called Maoz Esther, located in Samaria near the Kochav Hashahar settlement. One young woman who confronted the forces during the evacuation was arrested. The Binyamin Citizens Committee criticized the move. "This must be the 'entry gift' that the old-new Defense Minister Ehud Barak is giving the Left, in order to justify his joining the Likud government," they said in an announcement. "It has already become a method for Barak; every time the Left attacks him, he compensates them by evacuating Jews," the announcement continued.
