The Peace Now movement claimed on Tuesday that two new Jewish outposts were recently built on government-owned land in Judea and Samaria.
According to residents of the outposts, Nahlei Tal in the Binyamin region and Tzofim North in Samaria were built on land belonging to the already established Talmon and Tzofim settlements.
Israel Hayom has also learned that two months ago, 10 prefabricated homes were set up in the Nofei Prat settlement in the Binyamin region without government approval.
A representative of Peace Now said that as opposed to smaller outposts set up by members of the hilltop youth movement, the new structures are being constructed with aid from local authorities, such as the development of roads and preparation of the ground and infrastructure for the homes.
Five new homes were placed in Tzofim North and seven were placed in Nahlei Tal. All the homes were connected to the national electric grid and water carrier.
Peace Now intends to petition the High Court of Justice to instruct the relevant authorities to destroy the homes.
A statement by the Civil Administration said it was aware of the matter and orders to destroy all of the new homes have been issued.
‘A Defeat for Peace Now’
Nationalist land dealer Moshe Zar hailed the State Attorney’s Office (SAO) reply to a High Court motion, in which the SAO said that radical leftist group Peace Now does not represent real-life Arabs when it files motions against Jewish outposts in Judea and Samaria.
