Several Israeli families began leaving the West Bank settlement outpost of Migron early Sunday as a court deadline for their evacuation loomed, an AFP correspondent reported. Migron, the largest and oldest settlement outpost in the occupied West Bank unauthorised by Israeli authorities, was built on private Palestinian land and in August 2011 Israel's Supreme Court ordered that it be cleared.
