Evacuation nearly over: Four families, synagogue remain in Amona

Construction on private Palestinian land - as opposed to unclaimed land - is prohibited under a 1979 Israeli Supreme Court ruling, and Attorney-General Avihai Mandelblit has said he can't defend some provisions of the bill against legal challenges.

On Wednesday, Netanyahu announced the establishment of a new West Bank settlement to replace the illegal outpost of Amona, that is now being evacuated and demolished as per a court order.

Settlements are seen as an obstacle to peace, an impediment to any future two-state deal, and are widely condemned by Palestinians and by the worldwide community.

During the 10 days of his presidency, Israel has approved the total of 6,060 settlement units in the West Bank and Jerusalem. In 2006, also on February 1, Israeli police demolished nine homes at Amona, setting off violent clashes pitting settlers and their supporters against police and soldiers.

The Israeli army on Tuesday ordered the evacuation of the Amona settlers within 48 hours, saying that the army would bar entry to Amona and not allow anyone to stay on the premises 48 hours after midnight on Monday.

'Amour' actress Emmanuelle Riva dies at 89
Emmanuelle Riva, a French star of screen and stage who was nominated for an Academy Award for best actress in 2013, has died . Riva was born on February 24, 1927 in rural France and made her way to Paris at 19 to the dismay of her working-class family.

Israel has accelerated plans for construction on land claimed by Palestinians since the inauguration of President Donald Trump, who's promised to be more supportive of the Jewish state than his predecessor. "The police won't be violent if you are not violent", stated the instructions issued by Amona's resident-led campaign against the evacuation.

The Israeli government and the residents had in December agreed to a deal that would see 24 families peacefully move to adjacent land considered absentee property.

About 50 families now live in Amona. The establishment of Jewish settlements - about 400,000 Israelis now reside there - has been denounced internationally because the area is regarded as a future Palestinian state should a two-state solution be enacted. They are uprooting a community in Israel.

The names aren't known out there as commonly as coaches. "I talked to a lot of people, a lot of ex-coaches, that sort of thing". He could see his third coach during that tenure if Chuck Pagano is also dismissed. "Ryan is an outstanding man", said Irsay.

Israeli Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit has described the new bill as unconstitutional and a breach of global law since it allows expropriation of private land in areas Israel seized in the 1967 Middle East war.
