Security forces on Monday evacuated three of eight illegal outposts erected in the West Bank during Hanukka, Army Radio reported. The remaining five outposts will be evacuated within the next two days, the radio station quoted a security official as saying. Thousand of right-wing activists set up camp at the eight sites as part of a widening campaign held by Eretz Yisrael Faithful to expand the settlers' hold in Judea and Samaria. That same group sent activists to five new outpost sites on Succot and one during the summer. The Eretz Yisrael Faithful group said it hopes to mark the eight new sites as outposts by either building walls from stones in the area, renovating empty structures that exist there or by eventually bringing in ready-made parts of a home.
