Coalition Chairman MK Ze’ev Elkin arrived in Beit El as the PMs Special envoy, and discussed the agreement with Rabbi Zalman Melamed, the Rabbi of Beit El. According to the agreement, Ulpana residents will evacuate the premises of their own volition in exchange for the construction of 300 housing units in Beit El and ‘legal protection’ from future petitions against outposts.
