Israel’s Supreme Court ruled that the Judea and Samaria outpost of Migron must be evacuated by Sept. 4.

All 50 families must leave the outpost, the court ruled on Wednesday, in response to a petition filed by the families requesting a delay in the eviction until the modular homes being built for the evacuees are completed. They reportedly will not be habitable for several weeks.

The outpost’s homes must be razed by Sept. 11, with the exception of the 17 families who claimed in a petition to the court that they have purchased or repurchased the plots on which their homes are located.

Those families also had asked the court to allow them to remain in their homes – a request that essentially was denied by Wednesday’s ruling.

In March, the Supreme Court ruled against an attempt by the government to postpone to 2015 the demolition of Migron, which some Palestinians have claimed is built on their land. Deferrals against the demolition stretch back to 2006.

The settlers, who deny that Migron is built on private Palestinian land, had signed a deal with the Netanyahu government agreeing to relocate to a nearby hill.

    If Yahuda and Shomrom are not part of Israel then what jursidiction does the Israeli high court have over it?

  2. Norm Grey says:

    I read in a recent item on this or another website pertaining to Israel, that 200,000 acres of the Negev have been taken over by Bedouin and Arab squatters. But the "traditional" Bedouin tent is just a facade. They're actually building and already living in permanent structures. Where does the Israeli Supreme Court stand on that issue?
