The state requested from the High Court of Justice an extension until November to remove permanent buildings in the Ulpana outpost near Beit El on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the standing High Court order, the state has until July 1 to remove the homes from their current site. The state requested until November 15, a four-and-a-half month extension, to remove the permanent structures.

Defense Ministry workers began helping Ulpana residents move out of their homes Tuesday morning. Fifteen families left their homes Tuesday and the further evacuation of another 18 families was expected to be completed by Thursday.
