Three illegal West Bank outposts were recently legalized, after the head of the IDF Central Command Maj.-Gen. Yehuda Fox signed off on orders designating their municipal boundaries on Wednesday, the Times of Israel reported.
The outposts – Avigail, Asahel and Beit Hoglah – are 3 of 9 outposts approved for legalization by the government as part of the coalition agreements with the Religious Zionism party.
The homes and structures on the land are still considered illegal by Israel, as they were erected years ago without permits. The process to retroactively approve the existing buildings is expected to take years.
The Asahel and Avigail outposts are located in the Mount Hebron Regional Council, while Beit Hoglah is located in the northern Dead Sea region.
