Hundreds of right-wing activists headed to the former settlement of Homesh on Tuesday, in the latest attempt to resettle the site. According to Army Radio, the defense establishment said Tuesday morning that unlike in the cases of five illegal outposts set up on Sunday, troops would not allow the Homesh protesters to reach the former settlement due to warnings that terror groups would try to harm anyone coming to the area. Activists have been periodically camping out at the site, the status of which is disputed. IDF troops and police have tried to keep the settlers out and have evacuated the site a number of times, but the protesters continue to return.
