State Asks Week Delay in Amona Case

The State Attorney's Office asked the Supreme Court, Thursday, for an additional week to prepare its response in a petition to uproot the Binyamin-region Jewish community of Amona.

The request follows the purchase of large areas within the community by its residents in recent months. The state said it wanted to examine the implication of the cumulative acquisitions within the compound.
