Temporary homes can be built for all 50 Migron outpost families within four months at the new location for their community near the Psagot winery, Construction and Housing Minister Ariel Attias said on Monday.

“We can work under emergency procedures, as we did after the Carmel fire, to create a temporary solution for the Beit Oren community,” he said.

His spokesman clarified that the ministry had not been asked to prepare such a solution, but that it could.

Attias spoke one day after the High Court of Justice ordered the state to evacuate the West Bank Migron outpost by August 1 from its present location on land classified by the state as belonging to private Palestinians.

It rejected a petition by the state to evacuate the outpost by November 30, 2015, so as to allow time to build new homes for Migron residents on state land two kilometers away, near the Psagot winery.
