Israel is working to transplant an illegal West Bank settlement scheduled for demolition to Palestinian land nearby, effectively legalising the rogue outpost, an Israeli NGO said Friday.An advertisement bearing the crest of Israel's civil administration, a unit of the defense ministry in the occupied West Bank, appeared in Palestinian daily Al-Quds Thursday listing several plots of land near the Amona settlement, north of Ramallah.Israel considers settlement outposts built without government approval to be illegal and sometimes sends security personnel to demolish them.Amona, home to about 40 families, was built on lands privately owned by Palestinians, who successfully petitioned Israeli courts for the outpost's removal.
