Clashes against Israeli police: 12 settlers arrested

There have been clashes between Israeli troops in the West Bank and Jewish settlers or their supporters. 12 people were arrested during the confrontations.

The Israeli army is due to evict the residents of two settlements in the northern West Bank, Sanur and Homesh, starting on Tuesday.

As Pravda.ru said earlier today,the army began on Monday deploying 5,000 soldiers to deal with an estimated 2,000 right-wing Jewish activists expected to oppose eviction.

The residents of two other settlements have already left voluntarily. Police said 12 settlers were arrested in the various incidents. The military said 87 people were detained, apparently trying to reach Homesh and Sanur, BBC reports.

The head of the Israeli army, Lt Gen Dan Halutz, said settlers in the two settlements were stockpiling some weapons.

"There are stun grenades, and things of that sort, I hope there are no bombs," he told Israel TV on Sunday.
