Fences Protecting Ofra, Adam to Come Down Friday
The Head of Central Command in the IDF, Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon, gave orders at week's end to dismantle the fences protecting two Jewish communities, following the High Court's ruling in the matter.
The High Court found that the fences that surround and protect the communities of Ofra and Adam, in the Binyamin region, need to be dismantled because they prevent access to some Arabs' agricultural plots. The fences were allegedly built without the necessary approvals.
