The Israeli authorities is asking Israel's Supreme Courtroom for permission to delay the evacuation of a Jewish settlement outpost within the West Financial institution.

The courtroom decided the Amona outpost was constructed on personal Palestinian land and ordered Israel to tear it down by Dec. 25.

The Justice Ministry stated in a press release Tuesday that Israel petitioned the courtroom to delay the evacuation till Feb. eight so it might discover various housing preparations for Amona's settlers.

This week, the settlers accepted an Israeli authorities plan to go away the outpost peacefully and transfer to neighboring land, however Israel says it now seems it will be unable to maneuver the settlers to one of many deliberate areas. An Israeli rights group says the land in query belongs to a Palestinian landowner.
