Israeli settlers, on Sunday, set up a new outpost on Al-Muntar mountain, east of the Palestinian town of Sawahra.
According to local PNN sources, a number of settlers placed several mobile homes and barrels of water on the mountain, at 4 am, today.
Eyewitnesses said that, two days ago, a number of settlers tried to set up a container in the town, south of the settlement of Kedar. However, the residents in the area prevented them.
