Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday urged settlers set for eviction from an outpost in the occupied West Bank next week to leave quietly without resisting security forces.In the five decades since Israel occupied the West Bank, it has built about 120 formal settlements in the territory.The 330 settlers of Amona, the largest Israeli outpost in the territory that Palestinians seek as part of a future state, have rejected all government offers, and from fellow settlers, to rehouse them elsewhere in the West Bank.As well as the main settlements that Israel fully supports, settlers have created over 100 outposts -- many on hilltops across the West Bank, often with tacit government support.
