Amona evacuation begins. More than 20 arrests

More than 3,000 police officers and soldiers were clearing the buildings of the Amona outpost against passive resistance Wednesday afternoon, after spending four hours trying to persuade the residents still holding out there to leave their homes voluntarily. Confrontations took place, although both sides employed as little force as possible. At least 20 young protesters were arrested when they refused to yield ground. The security officers have been directed to complete the evacuation by the end of the day.
