Hours after the Border Police and Civil Administration officials demolished the structures in two unauthorized outpost in the Binyamin region on Wednesday, settler activists set up two new outposts. The Maoz Esther and Ramat Migron outposts were dismantled in the morning. By evening, activists had erected the entirely new Erez Farm and Panei Shilo outposts, near the settlements of Nahliel and Shilo, respectively. Settlers also arrived at Maoz Esther and began reconstruction. "Today, two outposts were demolished. We are rebuilding them, and we've set up two new locations," the Binyamin Settlers Committee said in a statement. "It's all for the Land of Israel." Judea and Samaria police suspect activists set alight a Palestinian-owned field near the Shavei Shomron settlement on Wednesday, soon after the clearance of Maoz Esther. Civil administration officials called Palestinian Authority firefighters to the scene to put out the blaze. Police also received reports of settlers throwing stones at Palestinian vehicles near the Gilad Farm outpost. No injuries or damage was reported.
