State asks High Court to extend deadline for relocation of evicted
Ulpana homes to November
The State has filed a motion with the High Court of Justice to
postpone the relocation of the of the Ulpana homes until November.
The motion said that the extension will "significantly help implement
the verdict in a peaceful manner."
Meanwhile, members of the Hilltop Youth barricaded themselves inside
one the evicted houses before being removed from the site by Ulpana
residents. There was no police involvement.
On Tuesday, 16 families moved out of their homes in Beit El´s Ulpana
neighborhood into temporary housing inside the community. Defense
Ministry workers helped the families move their belongings in what
was the first stage of the evacuation.
The remainder of the families will move out on Thursday.
In its motion, the State is asking to postpone the eviction until
November 15 citing complex engineering considerations. The State
stressed that the motion applies to the evacuation of the structures
alone, while the inhabitants will be cleared of the buildings by July
1, according to plan.
The State further noted that the government wishes to minimize the
potential for clashes with the residents and is trying to work out a
peaceful solution to the implementation of the court´s ruling.
The government reserves the right to decide the manner in which the
structures will be removed, the motion noted. (Copyright 2012 ©
