About Givat Ronen :

In 1999, the army of Israeli occupation grabbed around 4.5 dunums from the lands of Burin from the eastern side, which is adjacent to Bracha colony. The occupation justified the land grab under the pretext of "Security reasons" to build a watchpost in the area; in the after math of the second intifada, colonists set up caravans in the periphery of the watchpost, which later on became an outpost under the name of Givat Ronen.

The outpost is considered an imminent danger on the lands of  Burin; a number violations and attacks by colonists from the nearby colony  were documented. The attacks varied between home raids, lands torch, trees cut down.
