Talks are underway between a group of right-wing activists and representatives of the attorney general’s office and the Prime Minister’s Office, in an effort to reach an agreement over the apartment buildings in Beit El’s Ulpana neighborhood, Haaretz has learned.

According to the outlines of the agreement, the buildings will not be demolished. In exchange, the residents will agree to leave peacefully.

Among the representatives at the talks are Yesha Council of settlements head Dani Dayan and MK Yaakov Katz ‏(National Union‏). Beit El’s rabbi, Zalman Melamed, is receiving reports on the talks.

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein and cabinet secretary Zvi Hauser are representing the government in the talks.

“The hope is that the residents will be able to return, after an agreement is made with the owner of the land, of course,” an individual involved in the talks told Haaretz.
