Jerusalem: The Israeli Prime Minister`s office says the government has agreed to erect temporary housing that would allow for the evacuation of an unsanctioned West Bank settler outpost by July 15.
Israel`s Supreme Court has ordered that the Migron outpost be dismantled by August 01. Earlier this month the court rejected the government`s request to defer the settlers` expulsion until late 2015.
The outpost was built on privately held Palestinian land, a practice the court outlawed decades ago.
It has become a symbol of settler defiance as its residents resisted efforts to dismantle the enclave, in part by challenging Palestinian claims to ownership.
The Prime Minister`s office made the announcement in a statement on Sunday.
