Israeli soldiers stand guard near the West Bank Jewish settlement of Kedumim as settlers celebrate the occcupation of three mobile homes on the hilltop they call Har Hemed, known to Muslims as Jebel Mohammed on Oct. 7, 2001. The Hilltop Youth became a source of great anguish in Israel this week after a gang of 50 settlers stormed an army base adjacent to the Kedumim settlement in the northern West Bank and threw rocks at both soldiers and Palestinians.
