    Gush Emunim members had wanted to establish 12 settlements, but the compromise agreement allowed them to set up six. Diplomatic sources in Tel Aviv said the Israel government was unlikely to authorise any more settlements for as long as the present Israeli-Egypt dialogues and meetings were continuing.

    Background: Some 100 settlers, belonging to Israel's ultranationalist Gush Emunim (Faith Bloc) on Thursday (1 December) moved into military camps on the West Bank of the Jordan. They will stay there until given permission to move into two new jewish settlements : one close to Ramallah, just north of jerusalem, and the other on the Ramallah-Lat???
    SYNOPSIS: Construction work near completion at the Beit Heron settlement by the main road. It is one of the last two of six settlements built with government approval on the occupied West Bank.

    Members of Gush Emunim believe the Jewish people have the right to settle in all parts of Biblical Israel. Their earlier efforts to settle in areas captured by Israel in the war of 1967 were widely criticised in the West Bank and abroad. The Israeli government reached a compromise agreement with Gush Emunim to put its members temporarily into military camps. No decision has yet been announced as to when settlers can move from the camps.

    Also on Thursday about 80 Israelis who oppose the settlements demonstrated outside the new one at Givron, where the settlers had moved in under military protection.

    Arab residents had not protested, out the demonstrators had turned up to press their viewpoint that Israel had to make territorial concessions to prevent another Middle East war. They traded blows in scuffles with soldiers, and some forced their way onto the site.

    The protestors squatted on the ground shouting slogans and signing songs. They told the settlers it was in their hands to use the historical right to make the first steps on the road to peace.
