Kiryat Arba Group: IDF Cleaned Up After Hevron 'Pogrom'

The Kiryat Arba Action Group said Friday that the IDF has cleaned up the mess created when it evicted two Jewish families from their homes in the Hevron market 10 days ago.

"In order not to see and not to let others see the disgrace of the pogrom in the market, the IDF cleaned up and put the place in order," the action group told local Jewish residents. "The sights and pictures that came out of the market did not serve the IDF's PR. Perhaps there is a sense of shame, too."

"The eviction and the pogrom in the market raised the Arabs' self confidence to the sky and created a wave of joy amongst them," the group added.
