The police removed three succas Wednesday night that settlers had built during the holidays but refused to dismantle. The IDF expressed concern that they could be easily turned into illegal outposts. The structures were located near Kiryat Arba, on a hill by Elon Moreh and on a hill near Kedumim. Three people were arrested who were opposed to the evacuation of the lean-tos, including the head of the Kedumim Council, Daniella Weiss. Also Wednesday evening, IDF forces cleared out a couple dozen settlers who what wrested control of abandoned buildings in the area and had begun to prepare them for renovation. The settlers were requested to voluntarily clear the site, but those who refused to comply were removed by force. Four were arrested during the struggle.
