Defense Minister Ehud Barak is acting according to his own political considerations in his order to evacuate settlers from Hebron's Beit Hamachpela, Likud MK Danny Danon told Israel Radio on Tuesday morning. "Barak does not want to see settlers in Hebron," said Danon.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Monday night asked the Defense Ministry to delay Tuesday’s 3 p.m. voluntary evacuation order the Hebron apartment building, to allow the 15 Jewish families that reside there the opportunity to make their legal case. Defense Ministry sources, however, said Monday that the 3 p.m deadline still stands.

Danon said that as far as he knows Netanyahu does not intend to allow the evacuation to go ahead at 3 p.m.
