A government that ignores the High Court of Justice and supports thievery should be dissolved, Meretz chair MK Zehava Gal-On charged on Sunday.

The Meretz head made the comments after a number of right-wing ministers urged the prime minister to find a way to retroactively overturn a court ruling that called for the destruction of a West Bank outpost the court said was built on land "unfit" for construction.

"It's impossible that, again, such as in the case of the Hebron house, that now in the case of the Ulpana hilltop outpost senior government minister openly call for a revolt against the rule of law," Gal-On said, referring first to the government-ordered eviction of Jewish family from a home in the middle of a Palestinian neighborhood.

Gal-On called on the attorney-general to "cease his silence," and ban government ministers from showing contempt of court and ignoring its rulings.
