Two residents of the Amona outpost in the West Bank said late Tuesday that they intend to go on hunger strike to prevent the evacuation of the Ulpana outpost adjacent to the Beit El settlement, Army Radio reported.

Opponents of the evacuation set up a protest tent between the prime minister's residence and the Supreme Court in hopes of pressuring the government to find a work-around to the High Court's ruling that the outpost must be cleared out by July 1.
