BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Activists from the Popular Resistance on Saturday destroyed parts of a checkpoint east of Nablus in response to Israel's policies of "assassinations" and land confiscation.

Around 10 masked youths smashed the control room and removed metal barriers at the Beit Furik checkpoint using a metal grinder.

Organizers of the action said it was a response to the confiscation of Palestinians lands and the policy of Israeli assassinations, the latest of which was the killing of Muatazz Washaha, 24, as a result of Israeli shelling of his home in the town of Birzeit on Thursday.

The checkpoint was not occupied by Israeli soldiers at the time of the action.

Washaha was affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and was killed during an Israeli arrest raid.

Thousands gathered on Friday for his funeral near Birzeit. Israeli forces opened fire on marchers after clashes broke out, injuring five with live bullets.

The correct answer would be to level 300-400 illegally built structures in the West Bank.

To Julie #1: 'good job! any izraeli structure on occupied Palestinian land is illegal, so get rid of it!' Strictly speaking, any Israeli structure outside the 1947 partition lines or on land owned by Palestinians were illegally dispossessed of within those lines is illegal. Israelis structures built on land in Zionist hands at the time Israel accepted the UN Partition agreement or on land obtained by authentically legal means thereafter could be argued to have some right to remain.

The checkpoint was closed with 32 others in 2011 so it is pure Pallywood. Just a bunch of wankers busking for Western patsies like the ones posting here. According to Oslo Israel has the right to build whatever it wants in Area C and H2 so all the talk of "illegal" this and that is pure and utter ignorance (to say nothing of matters above and beyond Oslo). Worry about real issues like 18,000 Palistinians starving to death in Yarmouk Camp in Syria instead of long closed checkpoints.
