Yoel Tzur, who was among the founders of the Ulpana neighborhood in memory of his slain wife and son, said, Tuesday morning, that the first stage of uprooting more than 30 families from the neighborhood made it "a sad and difficult day". Interviewed by Arutz Sheva, he said, "We know know to get up from a situation like a fall and have proved that even in difficult situations we march forward."
Tzur stressed, "We leave the neighborhood with a great unwillingness." He added, "This day we are sad but we will make it through with our heads up. We will not bow our heads but walk with pride and return to establish the neighborhood with a basis for another 300 housing units."
