A compromise of sorts was reached overnight on Sunday regarding the Amona outpost, following a meeting involving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett and Samaria Regional Authority Yossi Dagan.

According to the terms of the plan, 24 of the approximately 40 families residing in Amona would agree to voluntarily relocate immediately to an adjacent hilltop that is considered to  be “absentee,” meaning the owners are unknown. The previous version of the plan only proposed to relocate 12 of the families to the alternate site.

Residents are expected to vote on this most recent framework around 8:00 a.m.
