The state is likely to ask the High Court of Justice for a 90-day delay in the removal of some Migron outpost buildings, to allow time to adjudicate the settlers purchase claim.

But the state is likely to insist that all the 50 families who live in the small hilltop community located in the Binyamin Region of the West Bank must voluntarily evacuate their homes by the court mandated date of August 28.

The Ministerial Settlements Committee formulated both positions for the state, when it met to prepare the state’s response to the High Court of Justice on the matter, which is due on August 19.

The High Court of Justice has ordered the removal of the homes because they were built without permits on land classified by the state as belonging to private Palestinians.
