Amona eviction deferred to April
Court orders State to evict illegal West Bank outpost by end of April despite government bid for six month

The High Court of Justice ordered the State to complete the eviction of the illegal West Bank outpost of Amona by April.

 

Tuesday's ruling effectively denied the State's request to defer the eviction by six month, as the government reviews its position about the outpost.

The settlers residing in Amona claim that they had legally purchased the land from its original owner.

 

Amona's eviction has been postponed several times, most recently because of the nearing elections.

 

The outpost, which was erected in 1995, was the scene of bloody clashes between settlers and IDF forces in 2006, during its first eviction attempt.

 

Since then, the resistance mounted during Amona's eviction has become a symbol for the settlers' struggle against the government's intentions to remove illegal settlements.
