Court Order Stops Gush Etzion Demolition at Zero Hour


Large IDF and police forces approached the community of Ma'ale Rehavam armed with means to disperse protests and riot-control gear, after the Defense Ministry was ordered by the Supreme Court to destroy several buildings by next Sunday. However, in a dramatic last minute turn of events, the security forces received an order from the Supreme Court cancelling the destruction at the zero hour.

Following the order, security forces have been prevented from evacuated any homes, property or persons, but are able to continue advancing towards the community to police it and enforce the law.
