Ammunition and night-vision equipment disappeared from the army post at the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar on several occasions, senior army official told Israeli newspaper Haaretz this week.

Army suspects that extremist settlers may have been responsible for the thefts, expressing worries that it could be used in terror attack against Arabs.


Following a series of conflicts between soldiers and settlers, the army Central Command decided to evacuate the army post at Yitzhar several months ago.
