The High Court of Justice issued an interlocutory order on Wednesday, asking the State to explain why it is refraining from enforcing demolition orders issued for the buildings of the illegal outpost Amona in the West Bank.

High Court Justices Dorit Beinish, Eliezer Rivlin and Elyakim Rubinstein issued the order in a hearing held this morning in the petition filed by 10 Palestinian land owners with assistance by human rights group Yesh Din. The judges ordered the state "to explain within 90 days why the State will not enforce the demolition orders issued for the compound in question.”
