On 26th of May 2013, a group of settlers under the protection of Israeli military began to set up a number of tents in the eastern area of the town in Beit Omar. They proceeded to raise the israeli flag on the tents while the israeli forces were spread out in the surrounding area with a heavy presence on the main road (route 60). They closed off the main entrance of the town preventing people from moving in & out.
Soon clashes started at the main entrance of Karmi Tzur, the israeli forces started shooting tear gas, sound bombs & rubber rounds. Two people were arrested.
