Sunday April 28, 2013, the Israeli High Court accepted an appeal filed by the Israeli government regarding delaying the eviction of an illegal settlement outpost near the central West Bank city of Ramallah until July 2013.The court had initially decided that the Amona illegal outpost, installed by the settlers on privately owned Palestinian property, must be removed by this coming Tuesday April 30.

The outpost was installed near the Ofra settlement, near Ramallah.

Palestinian owners of the property filed an appeal to the Israeli court, and the court ruled in their favor, but the army and the political leadership asked for a delay in order to discuss the matter.
