Illegal Jewish settlers agree to leave the Ulpana enclave
Friday 22 June 2012
The government has said 30 Jewish families have agreed to leave an illegal West Bank settler outpost, suggesting their court-ordered evacuation can proceed peacefully.
The Supreme Court gave the government until 1 July to dismantle the Ulpana enclave, which was built on private Palestinian land. Israel considers such settlements illegal, but it permits construction on other land which Palestinians claim for a future state.
The settlers live in five apartment buildings, and they will be moved to a site near by. The government has also said it will build 300 more homes in a nearby settlement.
