Alonei Shilo (Hebrew: אלוני שילה‎, lit. Shilo Oaks) is an Israeli settlement organized as part of a local council in the Samarian hills of the West Bank. Located near Karnei Shomron, and now part of the municipality called Karnei Shomron Local Council, the outpost was established in 1999. It was initially named Nof Kaneh (Hebrew: נוף קנה‎, lit. Kaneh View) after nearby Kaneh stream, but was later renamed after Shilo Levi, who was killed in the 1997 Israeli helicopter disaster. The international community considers Israeli settlements in the West Bank illegal under international law, but the Israeli government disputes this.[1]
