Labor faction chair Daniel Ben-Simon on Tuesday seemed to give an ultimatum to party leader Ehud Barak on the matter of unauthorized outposts in the West Bank. He said that the Labor party would reconsider continuing to sit in the coalition if the outposts are not dismantled. Speaking to Army Radio, Ben-Simon explained that he had been given a guarantee from Barak that the outposts would be removed before the next Knesset session opens, in some two months time. He added that to the best of Barak's knowledge, a plan for the removal was being formulated.
