Supreme Court Discusses Destroying IDF Hero's House

The Supreme Court on Wednesday discussed a petition from the Shalom Akshav organization seeking the demolition of several homes in the Yovel neighborhood of Eli and other locatons. Among the homes is that of the widows and orphans of Major Ro’i Klein and Major Eliraz Peretz, both of whom are decorated IDF heroes who gaves their lives to rescue the rest of their platoons. Shalom Akshav claims that the land belongs to Arabs and is in fact not state land. The group demands the residents be evicted and the homes demolished.
