Military Memorial Vandalized

The desecration of a memorial to soldiers Yehuda Ben-Yoseph and Yoav Doron, next to the eastern Hevron Hills Jewish community of Ma'alei Chever, was discovered Friday. Israeli military trackers and other troops were sent to the scene to see if tracks led to a nearby Arab village.

The two soldiers were shot by mistake while serving on Antenna Hill, south of Mt. Hevron.
