MK Dan Meridor (Likud) on Sunday supported Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's plan to re-locate five unauthorized apartment buildings in the Ulpana outpost to land that has been authorized for housing in the Beit El settlement, emphasizing his belief that it is necessary to strengthen the settlement. 

"The idea that the government will clash with the court is off the table," Meridor told Army Radio.

Over the weekend, Netanyahu held a number of discussions on how to respond to a High Court of Justice mandate last month to remove the buildings, which house 30 families, by July 1.

According to the court the homes were built without permits on private Palestinian property.
