MKs: Immediate Jewish Residence at Beit Hamachpelah


Knesset members Yariv Levin and Orit Struk, who head the Knesset Lobby for the Land of Israel, welcomed, Monday morning, the ruling by the Judea and Samaria (Shomron) Appeals Committee, upholding the claim of Jewish purchasers to Beit Hamachpelah in Hevron. They called on Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to immediately approve the transaction and enable the Jews to return to the residence at the foot of the Me'arat Hamachpelah Cave of the Patriarchs.

Their sentiments were echoed by Member of Knesset Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party).
