Residents of Beit El clashed Wednesday with a group of right-wing protesters who had arrived at the West Bank settlement to demonstrate against the imminent removal of its Ulpana neighborhood. The Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that the neighborhood had been built on private Palestinian land and therefore must be demolished.

About 20 young protesters gathered at the entrance to the settlement and outside the home of the community’s rabbi, Zalman Melamed, reported Israel Radio.

On Tuesday night a group of protesters was forcefully removed from an empty house in Ulpana.
