“Terrorists,” Knesset member Mossi Raz of Meretz described the settlers in the illegal outpost of Evyatar. His sharp remarks in an interview this week came in response to a compromise that the government reached with the settlers living in the outpost.
The Israeli Defense Forces initially ordered the settlers to evacuate, but later on the government reached a compromise with them to be evacuated by 4 p.m. today in exchange for the government looking into the status of the land and verifying if it would be possible to regularize it. In other words, the residents would be removed, but their homes would not be demolished for the time being. The outpost was evacuated peacefully today.
