Likud Minister Benny Begin on Monday called on residents of the West Bank outpost of Migron to sign a deal to relocate their homes 2 kilometers away, saying he would ask the High Court of Justice to give the settlers until 2015 to do so.
Begin held a press conference on the issue after Likud MK Danny Danon and National Union MK Uri Ariel said Sunday evening that that talks broke down over the conditions under which the homes would be relocated.
Begin said that he would ask the High Court of Justice to allow the settlers until November 30, 2015 to relocate in order to give them time to build new homes. He said that following the relocation, the Migron outpost land would be turned over to the Civil Administration.
The Likud minister said that all 48 families in Migron must sign the agreement before the government can present it to the High Court.
