20 Jews Enter Abandoned Home in Hevron
About 20 Jewish women and children entered an abandoned home on the outskirts of Admot Yishai neighborhood in Hevron Wednesday, with the intent of making it inhabitable. One of the women told Israel National News Wednesday that the home was used this morning by Arab terrorists, who cut barbed wire and crawled into a porch to observe Admot Yishai. A Jewish girl who saw them began shouting and throwing rocks, and the Arabs ran away.
The woman said that the intention is to turn the home into a children's playroom. "We do not know who the home belongs to and we do not care," she said. "It has been abandoned for more than 10 years."
Army and police are on the scene. The Civil Administration is reportedly awaiting word on the ownership status of the home before it decides what to do.
