    A series of fires blazed in the West Bank on Monday afternoon, in what the defense establishment suspects was an act of retaliation by extreme right-wing activists after several structures were dismantled in unauthorized outposts during the morning.

    Palestinians reported that Jewish settlers set fire to dozens of dunams of Palestinian-owned land south of Nablus. In addition, settlers set fire to olive groves and fields belonging to the Burin and Asira villages near the settlement of Yitzhar in Samaria, human rights group Yesh Din said.

    Other reports said two Palestinians were wounded after settlers hurled stones at their car near the Hawara checkpoint.

    Palestinian firefighters were working to put out the flames, and the police and IDF launched an investigation into the fires.

    On Monday morning, Civil Administration officials and border policemen arrived at the Adei Ad outpost and demolished an unauthorized caravan.

    Later in the morning, authorities dismantled four structures in the Mitzpe Danni and Nofei Yarden outposts.

    The Council of Binyamin Settlers issued a statement accusing the authorities of dismantling the structures because of a dispute with the settlers, who have filed a complaint against a Civil Administration employee.

    This link does not lead to this story. Can you provide a better link to the story?

    Also, Cast Lead was a response to the government of the Gaza strip enabling the firing of large numbers of rockets onto populated areas. Hamas was complicit in the launching of rockets, so the government of Israel dealt with Hamas.

    In this story, what little comment there is by anyone in government makes clear that the actions of those setting fires in the west bank is seen as a felony which the government is investigating.

    the accusation of setting fires to Olive groves is a perennial accusation by Palestinian supporters. The stories are sparse on proof and heavy on invective.

    So, I don't know if the story even exists. It is clear from context it is not Israeli policy, as opposed to Hamas' policy of random rocket fire so the comparison to cast lead is odious and uncalled for. And the story is part of a pattern of Palestinian lies that goes back years. And you personally have a history.

    The West Bank's correct name is the Hebrew Judah and Samaria, called Judah and Samaria for thousands of years, renamed the West Bank by Jordan when it stole the land during the '48 War.

    The Judea Capta coins minted by the Romans 2000 years ago when they captured Jerusalem and Judah, verify the historical link between the land and the Jewish People.
    Judaea Capta coinage - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Thus, Arabs are illegal squatters on sovereign Jewish land
