The government is preparing to free the murders of the Dickstein couple – and also may level their eldest son’s home in Beit El.

The house is located in Ulpana neighborhood the community and is under threat of demolition.

Yosef Yaakov Dickstein, 44, and his wife Hana, 42, and their son Shmuel, age 10, were murdered by Arab terrorists in the nearby community of Psagot, along with Sergeant Elazar Leibowitz, 21, of Hevron.

Public Diplomacy Minister Yuli Edelstein, who voted with the majority of the Cabinet to approve release more than 1,000 terrorists for the return of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit, is planning to visit the Ulpana neighborhood sukkahs Sunday.

His visit follows previous ones by Science Minister Daniel Hershkowitz, Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara, coalition chairman Ze’ev Elkin and other Knesset Members.
