Israel’s government has asked the country’s Supreme Court to postpone the demolition of a West Bank outpost for several months.
The state requested the extension because it said it discovered new information that the Givat Assaf outpost near the Beit El settlement was not built on privately owned Palestinian land, as was alleged by Peace Now in the court case.
Givat Assaf is to be demolished by July 1. It is one of six illegal outposts that the court ordered to be dismantled.
