Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered all illegal structures built on private land in settlements and outposts removed by the end of the year, the High Court of Justice revealed on Monday in response to a petition from Peace Now. The Peace Now petition called for the removal of six outposts in the West Bank.

In addition, the government will work to legalize structures built on State land in the West Bank.

The State told the High Court that more demolitions of illegal structures were carried out among Israelis in the West Bank than among Palestinians and that since 2005, multiple attempts to establish new outposts have been blocked by the State.
