The bill passed by the Knesset allocates 3.8 billion shekels ($871 million) for the approximately 9,000 settlers who will be expelled.

Following the Knesset vote, about 200 Gaza families prepared to file compensation claims. Other settlers, however, refuse to accept the government’s decision and plan to resist to the bitter end.
