Minister of Housing Ariel Atias said Monday that the state would be able to move Migron residents to temporary quarters at Givat Hayekev within the four months specified by the High Court of Justice. Atias signaled that the state would respect the Court's ruling.

On Sunday, the High Court rejected a compromise proposed by Minister-without-Portfolio Benny Begin and the Migron residents to relocate to Givat Hayekev by 2015.

Although the Court rejected the proposed timetable, and ordered the outposts removal within four months, it did not invalidate the relocation plan.
