Government Demolishes Homes of IDF Soldiers Fighting in Gaza


IDF troops on Wednesday destroyed several structures and a stone house on a hilltop next to the central Samaria town of Kfar Tapuach – at the same time as the residents of those homes were serving in the IDF, with at least one fighting in Gaza. The Honenu civil rights organization called the demolitions “a sad travesty” that “damages the unity of Israelis at this critical time.”

The hilltop in question is on state land and not owned by Arabs, but is considered an “unauthorized outpost” by the government.
