The civil administration, with the help of hundreds of Border Police officers, demolished three homes at the Migron outpost in the West Bank early Monday morning.

In so doing they made good on a pledge by the state to the High Court of Justice that the three structures populated by families, including one woman who had just given birth, would be taken down in September. The High Court of Justice has declared that the outpost is illegally built on private Palestinian land. Outpost residents have argued that the property was either abandoned or purchased from Palestinians.
