Eviction of Givat Assaf outpost delayed
High Court judges accept State's claims, agree to postpone eviction for second time, until July 2012

The High Court of Justice on Monday evening ruled that the State will submit an updated announcement on the eviction of the Givat Asaf outpost in Samaria by July 2012, thus accepting the State's claims.

 

Two weeks ago the State requested to postpone the eviction of Givat Asaf outpost to July 2012, claiming that the political echelons sought to reach a solution to the matter through "peaceful means."

Last week, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman blasted the government's intention to evacuate the illegal outposts of Migron and Givat Asaf.

 

"On my part, the dismantlement of these settlements is grounds for the dismantlement of the government," Lieberman said during a Yisrael Beiteinu faction meeting.

 

"We won't be able to stay in the government, and there are people in Likud who won't be able to live with it," he said.
