Yesha Council chairman Danny Dayan spoke out Sunday against a letter sent Thursday night to Binyamin Regional Council head Avi Ro’eh advising him that he must evacuate the Migron outpost by Tuesday morning, calling it "inflammatory."
Dayan told Israel Radio that the letter, sent by the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories Maj.-Gen. Eitan Dangot, should not have been sent and was unnecessarily inflammatory.
Migron residents and the Binyamin region on Saturday night said they are holding firm to their understanding that the evacuation of the West Bank outpost is not scheduled to occur until after a High Court of Justice hearing on the matter on Tuesday.
Dayan said that the Migron residents did not violate any law or agreement in their decision not to evacuate by Tuesday morning. "Settlers are also allowed to put their hopes on the Supreme Court and to hope that their petition will be accepted," said Dayan.
