Settlers are planning 10 illegal outposts as part of a campaign to challenge the government
A West Bank settler movement “Nachala” said it embarked on a three-day mission on Tuesday to identify locations in the West Bank for possible illegal outposts they hope to establish in July.
This mission which they call “settlement operation” is nicknamed “Evyatar x10”, in reference to the outpost which was illegally established in May 2021 and which has since been a source of controversy with neighboring Palestinians who claim ownership of it. land, and the Israeli government.
The settlers say they plan to challenge Yair Lapid who is expected to be appointed interim prime minister after Naftali Bennett announced a snap election.
More than 1,000 settlement activists are believed to be involved in efforts to establish new settlements in the West Bank, supported by leaders of West Bank regional councils and other organizations.
On July 20, the settlers plan to put down roots in ten outposts simultaneously and their location tour is meant to familiarize themselves with the region, while learning the ideological and strategic significance of their initiative, organizers said.
“People who participate not only learn about the love of the Land of Israel as they travel through it, but also learn about the different possibilities of establishing new settlements,” said Nachala President Daniella Weiss.
