The Israeli occupation administration gave Palestinian activists one hour to quit the protest camp in part of the West Bank where Israel has vowed to build new settler homes, an organiser told AFP. Activists have erected a 20-tent 'outpost' in the area where Palestinians say Israeli settlement construction would destroy the prospects of territorial contiguity for their promised state.
