JENIN, September 18, 2011 (WAFA) – Jewish settlers Sunday at dawn broke into the evacuated Homesh settlement, south of Jenin in the northern West Bank, under Israeli army protection, said security sources.
Homesh was evacuated in 2005 as part of Israel’s plan to remove some settlements from the West Bank, but settlers often return to the settlement in an attempt to rebuild it.
The Israeli army intensified its presence along the Jenin-Nablus main road and to the south of Jenin. Soldiers broke into Fahma, a village southwest of Jenin, and put up a checkpoint at its entrance.
