Hours after security forces razed all the houses at Mitzpe Avichai, next to the Judean Jewish community of Kiryat Arba, Mitzpeh Avichai was being rebuilt. Israel National News brings you the pictures from the scene.

Community residents cooperated with other activists in the reconstruction project.

One of four youths arrested by the destruction forces was later released at the Hevron police station. Three other youths were brought to Jerusalem for a remand hearing. An attorney for the Honenu legal-aid organization said the juveniles complained of suffering heavy blows at the hands of the police and soldiers. One of them claimed the police picked him up and dragged him by the sidelocks traditionally grown by many religious Jews.
