A new report into the fate of the settlers evacuated from Gaza has accused successive Israeli governments of "absolute and complete failure" in dealing with them.
The state commission inquiry showed that 70 per cent of the settlers, who were forced to leave their Gush Katif homes following the Gaza withdrawal in August 2005, have still not been found permanent homes.
A large majority of the 9,000 evacuees have not been properly compensated and are currently living in temporary dwellings.
The state made the evacuees "refugees in their own country", said the report.
