Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz urged the government on Tuesday night to find a way to prevent the court ordered demolition of five stone structures in the Ulpana outpost, which house 30 families.

Steinitz was speaking at an emergency meeting held by the Yesha Council.

"I, my friends in Likud, and certainly Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyau will make every effort for the neighborhood, within the law, authority and justice," Steinitz said.

"The current situation is leading to a great absurdity in terms of morality, and the government must find a way to change this situation, including changing the law," he added.
