After the security forces left the site, dozens of youth gathered and began throwing stones at the departing forces and set fire to an adjacent field.

Four people were arrested in connection with the incident and were being questioned at the Binyamin police station.

This was the second time in recent weeks that the IDF participated in a Civil Administration action at the outpost. In September, a crane was confiscated from Ramat Migron.

Dozens of settlers fought with Palestinians on agricultural land in the area, in reaction to the destruction.



Earlier Wednesday, civil administration authorities, Police and and IDF forces razed six illegal structures in an outpost near Maoz Esther.

The structures were built without proper permits and had previously been raised before being rebuilt.

Four were injured by pepper spray and Palestinians throwing rocks, MDA reported.
