Migron Demolition Apparently Off


State attorneys will ask the Supreme Court to postpone the state's demolition of three buildings in the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Migron. Arutz Sheva learned, on Sunday, that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu asked the attorneys to review the matter and avoid a serious confrontation which could result.

A week ago, leaders of the community proposed a compromise, under which the residents of three other buildings without property or families with children would be removed. The Defense Ministry would neither deny or confirm reports and said the matter was under negotiation.
