West Bank: Palestinians pitch tents in new outpost effort

Palestinian activists began pitching tents and erecting huts on Saturday at noon, in an effort to establish a new neighborhood in Burin, a West Bank village south of Nablus.
Spokeswoman for the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee Abir Kopty tweeted that the name "Almantir" had been chosen for the new neighborhood, because in Palestinian culture it means "the hut built from stones and mud used for guards who are safeguarding their homes."
IDF soldiers and settlers were present, and activists reported that settlers were throwing stones at them.
