Dozens protest Amona evacuation in West Bank

Police arrest two Jewish teenagers among dozens who burned tires and blocked Route 60 near the Ofra settlement in the West Bank, in an apparent protest against the evacuation of the illegal Amona outpost.

According to police, several dozen young Israelis barricaded the highway with stones, before officers could reopen the roadway.

Two of the protesters were arrested for disturbing the peace, while the rest dispersed.

“The area is now quiet,” police say.
