The Israeli Disengagement Authority said on Monday that settler families who apply for temporary houses, and submit compensation claims by Wednesday, will receive temporary housing units.

The Disengagement Authority announced that only some 350 requests were filed, taking in consideration that only one month is left before the pull out plan is slated to begin.

Also, the Israeli government approved a plan to relocate Gush Katif settlers in the southern Nitzanim area.

According to the Disengagement Authority, some 240 settlers from the Gaza Strip, and 140 from the West Bank have already filed claims for compensation; the compensation claims are part of the Evacuation-Compensation Law.

The Israeli Ynet news website reported that Disengagement Authority announced recently that July 10 is the deadline for the submission of temporary housing units.

The Authority, and in a bid to encourage settlers to complete the submission, said that the temporary housing unit would be given to the settlers who finish the process and submit the compensation claims by Wednesday.

The authority added that the linkage between applying for temporary houses and compensation claims is intended to determine the seriousness of the settlers to evacuate.

Currently, all the temporary housing units, which have been ordered by the settlers, are placed in Nitzan, Miflasim, and Karmiya areas.
