As reported earlier by JOL, the Israeli High Court of Justice judges ruled against the Amona compromise, according to which some of the residents were supposed to move to plots of land near the outpost. The judges accepted the petitioners’ stance, which claims that the nearby land to which the Israeli government planned to move the Amona residents belongs to Palestinians.
