JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Israel's Cabinet has ordered the demolition of all illegal West Bank outposts built on private Palestinian land by the end of the year.

Monday's decision, echoing one announced earlier this month, came in response to a petition submitted by Peace Now to the Supreme Court, calling for the demolition of six particular outposts: Ramat Gilad, Mitzpe Yitzhar, Givat Har'eh, Givat Asaf. Ma'aleh Rehavam and Mitzpeh Lachish.
