An aerial photograph of the Ulpana neighborhood in Beit El reveals that aside from the five houses to be demolished, part of a sixth house also sits on the land belonging to a Palestinian. The civil administration confirmed that the sixth house has also been issued a demolition warrant, along with five caravans constructed illegally on Dora al-Qara’s lands near the Beit El settlement.
Representatives of the illegal outposts in Judea and Samaria, designated for demolition, sent to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as to government ministers, an expert opinion by attorney Yaakov Weinroth, saying that the law does not require to demolish structures built on private land, if landlords do not demand the evacuation. According to the statement, it is sufficient to provide financial compensation to the landowners, due to the fact that the outposts were built in good faith.
The Kiryat Gat Magistrate Court dismissed 51 demolition orders, issued against the inhabitants of the unrecognized Bedouin village Al-Serra. The court criticized the conduct of the State, which issued the orders despite the fact that the villagers have been living on their lands for decades.
A Palestinian who lives in the village of Dura Al Qara in the Occupied West Bank appealed to the Supreme Court demanding the enforcement of demolition orders issued for structures built on his land. Five large permanent structures are currently being built on land owned by Palestinian individuals. These lands were seized in the nineteen seventies by the Israeli army, for temporary military use. The appellant has recently noticed ground-breaking work being done to prepare for the construction of civilian structures on the seized lands, probably for residential use by the Beth El settlement.
Demolitions orders were served on structures on the Avichai Lookout, located on Hill 18. The orders will come into force in three days. In response to being served with these orders, residents began building another house. In protest for the demolition orders, settlers stoned an Arab-owned vehicle near Bay Ayin, and smashed its windows. (Hebrew)
