3 Families to Become Homeless in Gush Etzion


Seven years after Peace Now’s petition against the government for not demolishing homes outside of certain delimitations, three families in the Gush Etzion community of Maale Rehavam were informed that their homes will be taken apart in the next few days.

Maale Rehavam is a small community in Gush Etzion established 11 years ago and is home to roughly 30 families, secular and religious. The community’s spokesperson said that the land was not private and so the state could have legalized the homes, but did not do so and so the Supreme Court instructed the government to demolish them.
