The state filed a brief on Sunday night asking the High Court of Justice for an additional six-month delay to demolish the Amona outpost, located on the outskirts of the Ofra settlement in the Binyamin region.

In May, the court gave the state six months to schedule and complete the demolition of the outpost.

Yesh Din, who filed the petition to compel the outpost's demolition, said the state's conduct was "scandalous" and showed it would throw out any answer to try to "hold onto stolen land" from the Palestinians in the area.
