Volunteers from the Binyamin Regional Council arrived Friday to Amona to help those evicted pack the contents of their homes.

According to the Council, security forces had prevented the evicted families from returning to Amona; only after intervention from “higher-ups” were they granted approval to return to the mountain to begin the process of packing up their homes.

Some of the contents of the houses were already packed by Defense Ministry personnel and loaded onto moving trucks. The families can decide what to do with items on the trucks and to where they want the items transferred.

At this point, the Amona refugees are at the Midrasha (Torah Institute that hosts groups for seminars and weekends, whose dormitories roms usually have up to 3 or 4 bunkbeds). One of the families, interviewed on Galei Yisrael radio this morning, said that families with up to six children were given one room, but since his seventh child was born 2 months ago, he and his family have two rooms, for themselves and their children ranging from the age of 16 down.

"Caravillas" - modified caravans reminiscent of the dwellings given expellees from Gush Katif - will take two weeks to set up in Ofra. The police evacuated Amona a week before the final date set by the courts,
