Israel Evacuates West Bank Settlement

A report by the Associated Press today states that Israeli Forces are evacuating about 100 unauthorized settlements in Amona. The site is marked for destruction on February 8th due to a ruling in 2014 by the Israeli Supreme Court. The Palestinians have struggled 20 years to have this land returned to them. This closes another chapter in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On September 14, 2016 the United States committed $38 billion over a ten year period to military assistance for Israel.
