Dozens of Israeli security forces descended on a hard-line Jewish outpost in the occupied West Bank Tuesday, in apparent preparation to carry out evictions.Its residents had been given until Dec. 25, 2016, to relocate, but that was later extended to Feb. 8 after a deal was agreed with the Israeli government to relocate the families.Amona is the largest of about 100 unauthorized outposts erected in the West Bank without permission but generally tolerated by the Israeli government.Settlements such as Amona are called outposts – those that Israel has not approved.
