Preparations for the evacuation of the Ulpana outpost continued Wednesday as the Defense Ministry transferred eight mobile homes to a temporary neighborhood being established for the evacuees at the Binyamin Regional Brigade's base next to Beit El. The eight 'caravillas' join six transported by the ministry on Monday.

The Defense Ministry intends to complete the placement of 40 structures in the area by the end of the month so that by July 1 there will be time to try to persuade the settlers to move in an orderly manner.

The High Court of Justice ordered the five Ulpana buildings removed because they were built on private Palestinian property without the proper permits.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu received support from Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein for his plan to relocate five apartment buildings from the Ulpana outpost to an authorized tract of land in the Beit El settlement. Weinstein also approved the legality of a plan to further develop the Beit El settlement, by possibly constructing as many as 300 new units, according to officials.

Homes on three other outposts — Migron, Amona, Mitzpe Assaf — are also slated for removal this year as a result of petitions by NGOs Peace Now and Yesh Din to the High Court of Justice.
