Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Thursday sent a letter to Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat saying that a date must be set for the evacuation of Beit Yehonatan.

Weinstein said that the evacuation and sealing off of the building in the east Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood was an obligation decided on by the court.

The attorney-general went on to say that carrying out the evacuation order was not subject to Barkat's considerations as the mayor of Jerusalem and this should not one of the criteria for a delay in the evacuation.
