Following the dismantling of the Havat Gilad outpost yesterday (Monday), a wave of protest activity took place: settlers blocked roads in Jerusalem and across the West Bank; a molotov cocktail caused a house fire in the village of Huwara; near the settlement of Karnei Shomron, settlers threw stones towards Palestinian vehicles and clashed with security forces;  posters were hung across Judea and Samaria calling for a “day of rage” on Thursday; right-wing sources indicate “Price Tag” actions will be escalated, and that plans are underway to target a mosque in Samaria.
