Court Suspends Hevron Eviction


The Jerusalem District Court on Sunday ordered that an eviction order against residents of Beit Zecharia in Hevron be suspended. The court ordered that both the Jews living there, and the Arabs who claim ownership, present their cases, in light of a request by the Tal Construction and Investment Company, which purchased the property on behalf of the Hevron Jewish community.

The company said that a lawsuit it was involved in with Arab claimants had been directed at the question of ownership, not tenancy, so there was no reason to evict the current tenants right now.
