Gov't appeals to Migron residents to leave peacefully

August 25, 2012 23:53

Migron residents and the Binyamin Regional Council on Saturday night said they are holding firm to their understanding that the evacuation the West Bank outpost is not scheduled to occur until after a High Court of Justice hearing on the matter Tuesday, August 28.

Migron residents are hopeful that the court will delay the evacuation of 17 of the 50 outpost families, until it can determine the authenticity of their claim that they purchased the land on which those 17 families live.

On Thursday night, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj.-Gen. Eitan Dangot sent a letter to Binyamin Regional Council head Avi Ro’eh advising him that he must evacuate the outpost by Tuesday morning.

He told Ro’eh that his office and that of the Defense Ministry had made every effort possible to facilitate a peaceful evacuation, including providing an alternative site for the families to live.

He added that the two offices were willing to help the families with the move.
