Jerusalem , ALRAY - Chief of General staff of Israeli occupation army Roni Nomah signed Wednesday at night a military order to transfer settlers of Amona settlement to another location in the West Bank.
The Israeli High Court of Justice ordered to evacuate the settlement by December 25 since it was built on Palestinian private lands.
The Israeli occupation Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit proposed on Monday an apparent compromise to end the problem of demolishing an illegal West Bank settlement.
According to Mandelblit’s suggestion, the evacuees of Amona, would be housed temporarily on three plots of land administered by Israel’s Custodian for Absentees’ Property.
Settlers in Amona refused this solution saying that they are not tools to be transferred on another place.
The move appears to be an attempt to forestall the passage of a so-called “regulation bill” sought by pro-settlement ministers and lawmakers that would allow the Amona settlement to remain in place by allowing the state to expropriate private Palestinian property without the requirement of a compelling and urgent public need.
