Israel hands over Palestinian home to settlers

World Bulletin / News Desk

Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon agreed on Sunday to hand over a Palestinian home in the West Bank city of Al-Khali (Hebron) to settlers under the pretext that it belongs to them.

The decision came after the Israeli Supreme Court had ruled in favor of the settlers in a legal dispute.

"After they [settlers] broke into the house on March 19, 2007, I field a compliant with the Israeli Supreme Court, which had ordered the immediate expulsion of the settlers after acknowledging that they had provided the court with forged deeds," Fayez al-Rajabi, the Palestinian owner, told Anadolu Agency.

"On September 13, 2012, the Supreme Court accepted a petition filed by the settlers against the earlier verdict and ruled in their favor," he recalled.

According to al-Rajabi, the court entitled the defense minister to determine whether to allow the settlers to move into the building.

Al-Rajabi said the house, built in 1995 on an area of ​​3,500 square meters, is located east of Al-Ibrahimi mosque.

"The house is located near the Jewish settlement of Kiryat Arba and seizing it means connecting Kiryat Arba to scattered settlement outposts in the old town of Al-Khalil and turning them into a huge settlement complex," Abdel-Hadi Hantash of the Al-Khalil Land Defense Committee told AA.

"Israel is seeking to establish a huge settlement complex in the center of Al-Khalil," he added.

Al-Khalil is home to roughly 160,000 Palestinian Muslims and about 500 Jewish settlers. The latter live in several Jewish-only enclaves that are heavily guarded by Israeli troops.
