The High Court of Justice on Sunday morning will hear a request by the state to cancel a previous court ruling regarding the Ulpana outpost.

The hearing comes after the court ruled last September that the state must demolish illegal structures in Ulpana, adjacent to the Beit El settlement, by May 1 because they were built on private Palestinian land.

Last month, the court granted a 60-day extension to the demolition order, after the state requested extra time in order to assess its current policy on outposts.

In the past year, right-wing politicians and residents of Ulpana have lobbied the government to legalize the homes.
