West Bank town draws inspiration from Gaza ‘night confusion’ activities to confront settlers

Some West Bank villages and towns have drawn inspiration from the Gaza Strip night confusion activities as they embarked on confronting settlement outposts established on their lands, and the town of Beita is now serving as a model.
Beita protest against Eviatar

As night falls, hundreds of young men head to Jabal Sbeih (Mount Sbeih) and the surrounding area in the town of Beita in the northern West Bank to start organizing various activities, including what is known as “night confusion,” which lasts until dawn. 

The aim of these activities is to disturb the settlers who established a settlement outpost called Eviatar atop Jabal Sbeih.
