As the government prepares to evict 30 families from Beit El’s Ulpana neighborhood, their temporary caravilla caravan prefab homes have arrived at the military base adjacent to the community.
The government is compelled to carry out the eviction by July 1, 2012 in line with a ruling handed down by the High Court of Justice. Residents and supporters are planning protests ahead of that date.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu explains he is compelled to adhere to the decision of the nation’s highest court, and he vows to construct 300 homes in Beit El to replace those being demolished.
