Out of the Outpost

Israel evacuates an illegal settlement, steps up efforts to placate U.S.

Print Email

Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled today that residents of the Bnei Adam outpost in the West Bank had to go. The evacuation, which is being carried out voluntarily and carefully overseen by the Defense Ministry, is part of a coordinated effort by the Netanyahu government to appease the U.S., which has called for a settlement freeze. The Israel Defense Forces’ Civil Administration has recently upped by 50% the number of settlement inspectors monitoring construction in so-called Area C of the West Bank, the territory designated by the government as Palestinian land.
