Binyamin Residents March from High Court to Knesset

Hundreds of residents of young communities in the Binyamin region and their supporters gathered near the Supreme Court building in Jerusalem, Monday afternoon, in preparation for a march to the Knesset in a call for lawmakers to take a leading role in authorizing the communities before they are demolished under recent High Court rulings.

The march will feature a big ball to emphasize the message that "the ball is in the political court." Among those expected at the start of the march are Chairman Danny Dayan of the Yesha Council of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, as well as Knesset members from the Likud, National Union, Jewish Home and Yisrael Beiteinu parties.
