Yesh Din on Thursday asked the High Court of Justice to order the state to immediately evacuate 30 homes in the Ulpana outpost, located on the outskirts of the Beit El settlement.

It sent its request in advance of a hearing Sunday on the state request to be released from its promise to evacuate the homes, which were constructed on land classified by the state as belonging to private Palestinians.

Last year the state told the court it would remove the homes by May 1, 2012. But last Friday, four days before that deadline, it asked to be released from that pledge.

The fate of the homes now lies in the hands of the court, which must decide whether to cede to the state’s request.
