Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has agreed to the evacuation of homes in the Ulpana outpost, which the High Court of Justice had ordered demolished, Channel 2 reported Saturday.

The government had previously sought to delay action on Ulpana, and set up a special ministerial meeting to discuss the fate of homes designated as illegal by the High Court.
