Vilna'i: Evacuating West Bank outposts 'central issue' for new gov't

Evacuating illegal outposts in the West Bank is a "central issue" for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's new government, Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilna'i was quoted as saying on Saturday. The comments followed the Thursday demolition of a small West Bank outpost near Ramallah called Maoz Esther. A Reuters report quoted Vilna'i as saying "Certainly, right now this is a central issue and after we have a discussion we will be able to set a timetable for removal." He commented that in the past there was "ambiguity" on the issue, but that the government's approach was now "unequivocal."
