The Legal Forum for Israel on Monday petitioned The High Court of Justice to prevent the evacuation of 37 Gaza evacuees' families from their temporary homes in Kibbutz Karimya. The families, who have lived there since October 2005, are still in negotiations with the Disengagement Authority to receive plots of land for their permanent homes, their attorney Yuval Ganan told The Jerusalem Post. The families are worried that the Kibbutz will not extend the contracts on their temporary homes in the Kibbutz, which will run out this year, he said. The petitioners are asking the court to force the Disengagement Authority to take responsibility for ensuring the contracts are extended. The petition also asks that the relevant ministers take responsibility for the families once the Disengagement Authority closes at the start of 2010.
