The destruction of the illegal Beit El buildings in the West Bank went ahead on Wednesday, despite attempts by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to halt the demolition. The previous day, hundreds of illegal Israeli settlers clashed with border police, who attempted to evict them from the structure. The buildings are part of an Israeli settlement in the West Bank that the Israeli High Court has deemed illegal. The homes are built on what used to be private Palestinian land, which was seized by the Israeli military in the 1970s.
