Civil Administration inspectors accompanied by police and security forces started demolishing a number of transient structures on the Ranat Migron settlement on Tuesday morning.
Ramat Migron is a small outpost adjacent to the more well-known outpost of Migron,
which the state committed to evacuate by March 2012.
The illegal outpost in the Binyamin region has already been evicted a number of times with opposition from local residents.

On Monday, the Likud
faction discussed a proposal
that may retroactively legitimize structures built on Palestinian land in the West Bank.
Ynet has learned that the initiative was reportedly put forth by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
who suggested a committee be formed to explore the possibility.
Ministers Yuli Edelstein, Moshe Yaalon, Limor Livnat and Gilad Erdan voiced their support of the idea. Minister of Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Edelstein added that it would be "grievously wrong" for the government to sanction any such eviction or razing.
Assuming it is highly likely that Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein would object to such a committee, Environmental Protection Minister Erdan suggested that the faction seek legal counsel from a private attorney, to represent the government on the matter.
