Activists Demonstrate at Knesset Against Demolition


Dozens of activists on Wednesday night demonstrated next to the Knesset to protest the destruction of six homes in Maale Rehavam. Although a full analysis has yet to be released, Israeli authorities apparently deemed the homes to be technically outside municipal boundaries. Maale Rehavam is located in the Gush Etzion district. Because Israel never officially annexed the land, the IDF Civil Administration has the authority to demolish homes without due process. Seven youths were arrested at the Knesset protest.
