Jewish youths attempt takeover

 

Jerusalem - Dozens of Jewish youths took over an abandoned railway station near the West Bank town of Nablus yesterday in an attempt to establish a new settlement there. They left after a few hours to avoid being forced out by the Israeli army.

The youths, all from the neighbouring Shvei Shomron settlement, moved into the Sebastia train station, unused since the end of the British mandate in 1947.
