For the second night in a row Monday, settlers said they feared the imminent demolition of the Ramat Gilad outpost, located just outside the Karnei Shomron settlement.

On Sunday in an attempt to broker a deal to stave off the demolition, Dani Dayan who heads the Council of Jewish Communities of Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip and Moshe Zar who claims to own a portion of the property on which the outpost is constructed, met with Minister-without-portfolio Benny Begin (Likud).

On Monday, the Defense Ministry told The Jerusalem Post that no such deal was in the works. MK Ya'akov Katz (National Union) reported that the Defense Ministry had broken off negotiations toward a deal. He called on all government ministers to appeal to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the matter. Katz asked the ministers to ensure that no action was taken without Netanyahu's consent.
