Defense Ministry workers began moving boxes and furniture out of homes in the Ulpana outpost on Tuesday morning, a process that was expected to be completed Thursday.

The evacuation appeared to being going to plan, with 15 families from the outpost peacefully relocating to modular housing in Beit El in keeping with the High Court of Justice mandate that their homes must be relocated by July 1. On Thursday, another 18 families will leave.
