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.

Unknown persons slashed the tires of 14 cars and spray-painted messages on the elementary school, public buildings and three cars, including “death to Arabs,” “revenge” and “regards from the Ulpana,” referring to the Israeli government’s decision to uphold a High Court ruling to evacuate five homes in the Ulpana outpost that were illegally built on Palestinian-owned land. The message “Regards from Gilad Farm” was sprayed on the wall of the village’s elementary school.
