The ministers from the Religious Zionism party will be absent from Sunday's cabinet meeting to protest the violation of the coalition agreement by evacuating an outpost on Friday without coordination and against Smotrich's orders to the Civil Administration, according to Amit Segal.

The party stated: "We do not intend on letting this pass, and we are considering additional steps in the future."

Israeli police forces dismantled a newly-established hilltop outpost community in Samaria Friday afternoon, just hours after the outpost was established.

Jewish settlement activists erected several structures on a hilltop adjacent to the existing town of Migdalim in Samaria overnight, dubbing the outpost "Ohr Chaim" in honor of the late Religious Zionist spiritual leader, Rabbi Chaim Druckman.

The Defense Ministry's Civil Administration declared the area a closed military zone and ordered the immediate destruction of the structures.

Activists on the scene said Arabs from neighboring towns attacked the outpost during the demolition, assaulting Jews and injuring at least one. Witnesses report Arab rioters hurled stones at activists, while Israeli security forces present at the scene did not intervene.
