At the beginning of the letter, “We rejoiced with the vast majority of the people of Israel at the results of the past elections. We congratulated you on the formation of the long-awaited government.” And the letter continued, “One of your most important achievements was the process of displacing half a million settlers to the lands of Judea and Samaria,” using the biblical name for the West Bank.

This comes after the evacuation of the unauthorized outpost of Or Haim on Friday, by decision of the Israeli Minister of Security, Yoav Gallant. It is noteworthy that five families established a settlement outpost on top of a strategic hill in the northern West Bank on Thursday night to commemorate the one-month anniversary of the death of the religious Zionist leader, Rabbi Haim Druckmann.
