Emergency Meeting on Migron Eviction Next Week


Deputy Knesset Speaker and Member of Knesset Danny Danon (Likud Party) has succeeded in collecting the 25 necessary signatures from fellow Members of Knesset to convene an emergency meeting. The special session will be about the community of Migron, located in the Samaria region. Certain government officials have been calling for the community to be razed following multiple court hearings on whether the land belongs to the Jewish residents or nearby Arab residents of the Palestinian Authority assigned areas.

A press releases sent by MK Danon's office decried the recent eviction of Jewish residents from the Beit HaMachpelah building in Hevron. MK Danon pledged to not let the same incident happen to the residents of Migron. The special session will convene next Wednesday.
