The Israeli Supreme Court rejects appeal against the agreement on the Evyitar settlement outpost

The court unanimously rejected the appeal.

Jerusalem24 – Today, Sunday, the Israeli Supreme Court rejected an appeal submitted by Palestinians against the agreement reached by the government in Tel Aviv with the settlers who established the “Evyitar ” outpost on Mount Sabih in the town of Beita, south of Nablus.

The agreement stipulates that the settlers will be evacuated from it in exchange for the Israeli army staying there, provided that a geographical survey will be carried out with the aim of legalizing it later.

According to the Israeli news website, Ynet, the citizens with the help of Israeli and Palestinian human rights organizations emphasized the illegality of the agreement because the outpost is built on private Palestinian land and that the results of the survey are known in advance.

According to the website, the court unanimously rejected the appeal.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz had informed Knesset members who asked him about the outpost a few days ago, that the survey process had begun and will end soon, and a report will be submitted to him and everyone will see it.
