Approximately half of the 50 families from Migron evacuated on Sunday moved into the caravans in the Psagot neighborhood on Wednesday, as the Defense Ministry began dismantling and moving the old caravans from Migron.

Migron resident Aviela Deitch said only about 25 families are still in the guest houses at the nearby settlement of Ofra, which is where the residents went immediately after the evacuation.

Twelve of the caravans at the new Psagot neighborhood are uninhabitable and supposedly being fixed, though no one is sure when they will be ready. Deitch said the community settled into a pattern, with each family packing their own things, then lending a hand to other, larger families, and then helping Migron founder Itai Harel dismantle the stable for his horses.

One of his five horses refused to enter the trailer on Wednesday and Harel was forced to ride it away.
