From the Open Shuhada Street website, 11 May 2009

This past Friday, Palestinian and Israeli activists from various groups executed a direct action protest against a new settler outpost on a hill near Hebron called Hill 26. In response to the new outpost, which is illegal by Israeli law yet the military refuses to evacuate, activists built a Palestinian outpost on the same plot of land.
