The Meretz party plans to petition the High Court of Justice on Sunday to reject
the state’s request that it re-open the case against the 30 unauthorized homes
in the Ulpana outpost slated for demolition.
Last May the state promised
the court that it would remove the homes by Tuesday in response to a 2008
petition by Yesh Din on behalf of the Palestinian land owners who claim that the
structures are built on their property. In September, the court closed the case.
But on Friday the state asked the court to reopen it and release the state from
its pledge to take down the homes.
