Ya'alon Offers Deal to Demolish Teens' Memorial Community


Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon has presented an agreement to the Gush Etzion Regional Council in Judea over a new community in the area dedicated to the memory of the three murdered teens Eyal Yifrah (19), Naftali Frenkel (16) and Gilad Sha'ar (16) hy''d.

Tekoa Heh, a community of five families living in caravans, was established on July 4, shortly after the bodies of the three teens abducted and murdered by Hamas terrorists were found. The community has led to an ongoing court battle, despite being on state land not under Arab claims of ownership.
