High Court Dismisses Petition Against Homes in Beit El

A three-judge panel dismissed, Thursday, a petition by residents of the Samarian (Shomron) Arab village of Dura Al-Kara', north of Jerusalem, to remove buildings from land they claimed in the nearby Jewish community of Beit El.

The justices accepted the claims of the national government and Beit El authorities that the petitioners' claims were missing basic details and only presented a partial picture of reality.
