The High Court of Justice hammered the state on Sunday for its inability to answer basic questions about the status of six West Bank outposts designated for evacuation.

On June 22, the state had previously asked for a seven month delay for evacuating various outposts, including Givat Assaf.

Prior to June 22, the state had previously promised the court that by July 1 it would take down Givat Assaf's 25 caravans, which are perched on a small hill next to Route 60 and close to the Beit El settlement.

On Sunday, the state maintained that it should have more time to address the issue of evacuation because it had not sorted out the details about which parts of the outposts may have been newly purchased by Jewish settlers.
