Israeli Forces Dismantle Palestinian Encampment

Saturday, 02 February 2013 08:46 AM EST

JERUSALEM — Israeli troops fired tear gas and stun grenades to disperse Palestinian activists who had pitched a camp in the West Bank to protest Israeli restrictions on building in the territory.

The soldiers Saturday dismantled tents and shacks built on Palestinian-owned farmland near the village of Burin. About a dozen young men and boys, apparently Jewish settlers living nearby, also hurled rocks at the activists. No injuries were immediately reported.

It was the fourth protest encampment that Palestinians have built in recent weeks to draw attention to Israel's control of territory that they seek for their future state. In particular, they protest what they say is Israel's broader policy of not allowing Palestinians to build in areas under its control.

An Israeli military spokeswoman couldn't immediately confirm the clashes.
