      Knesset Members Call to Declare Judea & Samaria Legal

      Deputy Knesset Speaker and Member of Knesset Danny Danon of the Likud Party decried the Supreme Court decision to evict the residents of Migron. He called upon Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu to convene a session of the Ministerial Committee for Judea and Samaria and adopt the Levy Report. "The Likud government needs to stop ignoring our citizens living in Judea and Samaria. If they were Sudanese or Arab residents, the Supreme Court would not turn them from their homes," MK Danon stated. The Levy Report stipulated that Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria are legal within international law. Migron is located in Samaria.
