Residents of Maoz Esther were undeterred, and said they would rebuild their homes as quickly as possible. They called on others to join them in building new homes in response to every government-backed demolition.

After tearing down Maoz Esther, police knocked down a structure at Ramat Migron, not far away, at 11:30.
