The State Attorney's Office on Friday submitted to the High Court of Justice an appeal to delay the scheduled demolition of the Ulpana outpost by three months.

The state is requesting a new discussion of the petition which led the High Court to order the evacuation of the 30 homes in the West Bank outpost by May 1 because they were built on land classified as private Palestinian property.

The government had originally promised the court that it would bulldoze the homes, but in the appeal submitted Friday, the state requested that it be given 90 days to resubmit its position, and that the demolition of the outpost be frozen, pending this action.
