The Knesset will hold an emergency meeting on the planned evacuation of the Migron outpost next week.

The meeting will take place next Wednesday, after MK Danny Danon (Likud) gathered the requisite 25 signatures to call a plenum discussion during the Knesset's recess. MKs from Likud, Shas, Kadima, United Torah Judaism, Habayit Hayehudi and National Union supported Danon's call to hold a meeting titled “the national camp in the Knesset will not allow Migron to be evacuated – we will regularize the land through legislation.”

"The High Court is trying to stop the government from doing its job," Danon said on Wednesday. "We will stop Jews from being removed from their homes and we will not accept another ruling like the evacuation of Beit Hamachpela [in Hebron]."
