Israeli court to hear outpost demolition appeal
Israel's Supreme Court to hear government appeal to postpone dismantling rogue outpost
By The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) ' A last-minute legal challenge has put the scheduled evacuation of an unauthorized West Bank settler outpost on hold for at least a few days.

Israel's Supreme Court said Tuesday it will review the appeal next week.

The court set a May 1 deadline for the removal of the Ulpana outpost, saying it was illegally built on private Palestinian land. Last week the government asked for a 90-day delay.

Some 30 Jewish settler families live in Ulpana.

The court says it will review the government's request at Sunday's hearing.

Israel has vowed to remove dozens of unauthorized outposts but has taken little action.

Israel has about 120 authorized settlements in the West Bank. Palestinians consider both the settlements and the outposts illegal encroachment on their land.
