Israel Foots Bill To Move Illegal Settlers

Costs Thousands To Ease Migron Evacuation Transition

The Israeli government is footing the bill, worth hundreds of thousands of shekels, for moving caravans in the now-evacuated West Bank outpost of Migron. The caravans are owned and rented out by an organization called “Amana,” which supports settlements in the West Bank and other areas of Israel.

The mobile structures at Migron are not owned by the former Migron residents, but rather by Amana, an organization responsible for illegal settlement construction in numerous other areas, has a yearly budget of tens of millions of shekels.

The caravans were brought to Migron by Amana over the years, beginning in 2001, and Migron residents paid rent in order to use them. If the settlers’ goal had been realized, and Migron were to become a permanent settlement, Amana would have paid to remove the caravans, and sent them on to their next destination.
