Justice Minister denies Regulation Law is step to Judea-Samaria annexation

Israel’s Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked Tuesday denied that the Regulation Law tabled in the Knesset is a step towards the extension of Israeli law to Judea and Samaria. She explained in a radio interview that the measure was designed solely to resolve the thorny issue of the Jewish outpost of Amona, whose evacuation this month was ordered by the High Court on the grounds that it was approved by former governments on privately-owned Palestinian land. Shaked expressed the hope that Amona’s residents (40 families) would accept the latest proposal offered them and relocate their homes to an alternative site close by, so as to avoid forcible evacuation.
