Residents of the Migron outpost in the West Bank protested outside the Prime Minister's residence on Friday, the government force the attorney- general to support their High Court of Justice petition to allow 17 families to remain in their homes until their purchase claim is adjudicated.

The residents called on Netanyahu to gather an additional emergency meeting on the issue.

A Ministerial Settlements Committee initially agreed that the state would tell the court that the 17 families could remain in the outpost until their purchase claim was validated.

But the attorney-general found the decision problematic and said that even if the purchase claim was upheld, it was not possible for the families to stay in their homes.
