TIMELINE / A history of the West Bank outpost of Migron
Originally erected in 1999, Migron grew out of a cellular antenna tower to become one of Israel's most established illegal outposts.
Settlers attempt to erect the outpost for the first time, but vacate the site at the request of the Civil Administration.
The outpost is erected for a second time, this time in the form of a cellular antenna. This time, it is not immediately evacuated.
The outpost is expanding significantly and begins absorbing families, among them a large group of full-time yeshiva students.
The Housing Ministry funds infrastructure work at the outpost and prepares building plans.
The IDF plans to demolish Migron, but the operation is delayed due to Israel's unilateral disengagement from Gaza.
Peace Now submits a petition to the High Court of Justice demanding the evacuation of the outpost. The state commits to evacuate it within two years.
Yesha Council announces it has reached an agreement with the government, according to which the outpost will be relocated to a nearby location and its houses will not be demolished.
Supreme Court President Dorit Beinisch orders the outpost destroyed by March 2012.
