Migron Residents to PM: Attorneys are Deceiving You

Residents of the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Migron demonstrated, Friday, opposite the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem, in protest of the position presented by state attorneys to the Supreme Court, this week, that the residents must be evicted next Tuesday. During the demonstration, the residents called out to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, "The State Attorney's Office is deceiving you."

The residents are basing their position on a decision, about a month ago, by the Ministerial Committee on Settlement Activity to support letting the residents stay on property they purchased from a Palestinian Authority Arab. A Justice Ministry spokesman told Arutz Sheva, Thursday evening, that the state's submission to the High Court was supported by an affidavit from Minister Benny Begin and reflected the position of Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
