Sa'ar: If Hevron Purchase Proper, Let the Residents Be


Education Minister Gid'on Sa'ar responded, Thursday evening, to the purchase of what is being called "Beit Hamachpelah" by Jews from an Arab in Hevron.

Sa'ar, who serves in the diplomatic-security cabinet, said, "Assuming that the purchase was proper, the defense minister must give a permit for the deal on his authority and allow the Jewish residents to stay in the house that was purchased."
