Yitzhar

'''Yitzhar''' (

The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law (International law and Israeli settlements), but the Israeli government disputes this.

The New York Times has described Yitzhar as "an extremist bastion on the hilltops commanding the Palestinian city of Nablus ... where a local war is ... being waged". The inhabitants of Yitzhar have a reputation as being among the most extreme Israeli settlers and regularly clash with members of the Israeli security forces and local Palestinian civilians. The settlement is at the forefront of the settler movement's so called "price tag" policy (Price tag policy) which calls for attacks against Palestinians in retaliation for actions of the Israeli government against West Bank settlements.
