Report: State to Seek Delay in Amona Uprooting

The government will ask the Supreme Court for a six-month delay in evicting Jews from 50 buildings in the Samarian (Shomron) community of Amona, according to a Monday-morning report by Kol Yisrael government radio.

The state says the early Knesset elections change the circumstances for the move and the need to check the claims of the residents about the purchase of a quarter of the plots on which the buildings stand. In an earlier announcement to the court, the state promised to remove the buildings by the end of the year.
