Ministers to Meet at Migron


The ministerial committee on settlement will  hold its weekly meeting Monday in Migron, a day before the High Court is to give its final ruling on whether or not residents can stay in homes at the site. Attending the meeting will be residents of Migron, as well as the head of the Binyamin Regional Council, Avi Roeh.

In a letter Sunday to Eitan Dangot, the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, Roeh rejected demands that the residents leave their homes before the High Court's decision. In the letter, Roeh listed numerous reasons why attempts to evict the residents from their homes should end, including the fact that alternative housing was not yet ready.
