The Legal Forum for Land of Israel and two residents of the Ulpana outpost on Sunday submitted a petition requesting the High Court to annul its earlier order to evacuate the Ulpana by July.

The Ulpana outpost is located on the outskirts of the West Bank settlement of Beit El.

The petition also asked the court to freeze any action that the military or law enforcement authorities might take to destroy or evacuate the structures pending a decision by the Jerusalem District Court on the substantive issue of whether the Jewish Ulpana's current residents acquired their land rights legally.

The petitioners claim that the earlier High Court decision violated natural justice principles and that the court had exceeded its jurisdiction, since the facts regarding ownership have not been fully litigated.
