Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the Justice Minister, Yaakov Ne’eman, to establish a committee for examining ways to legalize the illegal construction in the outposts built on Palestinian private land in the West Bank.
Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin (Likud) called on the government to legalize the recent construction in the illegal settlement Migron. This week marks the end of the time period allotted to the State to demolish three buildings in the illegal settlement, according to the commitment to the High Court of Justice.
Judge Yoram Danziger of the High Court of Justice issued a temporary injunction prohibiting further construction in the illegal settlement Migron, which Palestinian residents of the village Burqa claim was built on private Palestinian land. In a previous hearing, during 2006, the State promised to evacuate the illegal settlement until August 2008. When the deadline passed with no evacuation taking place, the government informed the court that the settlers would be evacuated only after the completion of a new neighborhood for them in a nearby settlement. However, construction activities in Migron continued, most recently with settlers starting construction of three new permanent installations.
