Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman appealed to the Israeli leadership to express empathy toward the dozens of families being evacuated from the illegal West Bank outpost of Amona on Wednesday.

Liberman urged government ministers along with those who hold public office to be "considerate" toward the evacuees and "not take advantage of the plight of those residents and the false accusations and disagreements within Israeli society in order to try to secure narrow political gains."

As a resident of the Nokdim settlement, Liberman explained in a statement that he had a "heavy heart" in light of the High Court of Justice-ordered eviction and demolition of the controversial outpost built on privately-owned Palestinian land.
