The IDF sent an eviction notice to the residents of the illegal outpost of Amona yesterday (Monday), informing them that they have 48 hours to evacuate. “After 48 hours from when the notice was given, no person will be allowed to enter the area,” read the notice.
“Under my authority as the commander of the IDF forces in the area, I’m proclaiming this land demarcated territory,” wrote IDF Central Command Commander Roni Numa in the notice. In addition, the notice orders Amona residents to begin to move their belongings outside of the territory.
Meanwhile, Israeli security forces have been preparing for the evacuation. Last night, seven minors were arrested for trying to prevent a bypass to the outpost from being paved. The road is supposed to be used by IDF and Israel Police forces during the evacuation. The minors claim that the police officers were violent with them but the Israel Police has rejected this allegation.
The Knesset vote on the Regulation Law’s second and third reading was supposed to take place yesterday evening but was postponed until next week.
