The Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza (Yesha) quietly evacuated the illegal outpost of Mevo Horon North on Monday, as part of a deal with the Defense Ministry, Ma'ariv reported Tuesday. According to the report, the settlers left the outpost willingly in exchange for new building permits in nearby Mevo Horon. Twenty families were living in the outpost, which is located near Modi'in. "We are ashamed of the evacuation, but we did it only because it will save other places," one of the residents told the paper.
