A-G: Uproot Only 1 Amona Building, Access Road

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ordered the Israel Defense Forces, Thursday, to uproot one building in the Samarian (Shomron) Jewish community of Amona and the community's access road by Wednesday and not the 30 buildings demanded by Palestinian Authority (PA) residents and the leftist Israeli group Yesh Din. The order was part of a clarification following the different interpretations of the Supreme Court ruling in the matter.

Following discussions on the issue, it was decided, Thursday evening, by Deputy Attorney General Dina Silber that only those areas were private property of the PA residents for the purpose of the High Court decision.
