Havat Gilad Rebuilds Destroyed Homes
A week after the violent demolition of homes in the Jewish village of Havat Gilad (Gilad's Farm) by Israeli security forces, the destroyed structures have reportedly been rebuilt. Villagers are also said to be building four new homes as an act of protest against the injustice perpetrated by the authorities against them last Monday.
"Our Zionist response to the destruction of the country is to build immediately, not just the razed structures but several other ones," Havat Gilad founder Itai Zar told journalists.
The government has meanwhile pledged to demolish the new buildings by the end of the year.
