Bennett, Gantz Agree on Evyatar Outpost Deal, Settlers to Evacuate
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Defense Minister Benny Gantz agreed early Thursday to advance the legalization of the Judea and Samaria outpost of Evyatar as part of a compromise agreement by which the hundreds of settlers and right-wing activists at the site would agree to voluntarily evacuate.
The compromise deal was announced early Wednesday by the Nahala movement and the Samaria Regional Council, which spearheaded the outpost’s construction last month, in the aftermath of the Tapuah junction terrorist attack, which claimed the life of 19-year-old Yehuda Guetta
The scope and the speed of the settlers’ ability to receive a nod of approval for a new settler community on a Judea and Samaria hilltop is unusual and represents a victory for the grassroots movement. (JPost / VFI News)
