    Security forces and civil administration arrived Thursday morning to the “Shchunat Gal” outpost near Hevron and demolished a fence, foundations for a barn and a building that served as a synagogue. As a result, clashes broke out between the demolition team and locals. Two minors were details but released shortly thereafter. Yisrael Bramson, acting mayor of Kiryat Arba, responded to the destruction of the synagogue: “(Moshe) Ya'alon again demonstrated his attitude to settlements and in to synagogues in particular. This structure in question was not built on Arab territory, only the Likud party would destroy and devastate the land of...

    The family of Abd al-Fattah al-Sharif, the terrorist who was shot by a soldier in Hevron last week after a stabbing attack against Israelis, on Monday threatened the IDF with legal procedures, the Ma’an news agency reported. In a press conference at the Hevron governor’s office, al-Sharif’s uncle Fathi al-Sharif also urged the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its chairman, Mahmoud Abbas, to file legal procedures against Israel at the International Criminal Court, over the incident. He also urged the PA and human rights organizations to push for the release his nephew’s body. On Sunday, it was reported that investigators in...

    Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir and Lehava director Bentzi Gopshtain, both nationalist activists of the Otzma Yehudit party and residents of Kiryat Arba, contacted the Hevron police on Saturday night in a request for an investigation. The two called on police to investigate the activist of the radical leftist NGO B'Tselem who last Thursday filmed a soldier shooting a wounded Arab terrorist in the city, mere minutes after the terrorist and an accomplice stabbed and wounded a soldier. Following the video footage the soldier was arrested and accused of murder. He has argued he shot the terrorist because he thought he was...

    The Palestinian Authority continues to glorify terrorists, this time in a Ministry of Education ceremony honoring the 18-year-old terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack near the Tomb of the Patriarchs on Monday. MEMRI reports that Kalzar al-Awiwi was a student at the Wadad Natzer al-Din high school for girls and that the Palestinian Ministry of Education published a death notice in which she was described as a shahid or martyr. The ceremony, which took place earlier this week, was held at the school. The head of Hevron's Ministry of Education and Culture, Sami Marwa, was the main speaker, while...

    The European Union on Saturday called on Israel to halt the demolition of illegal Palestinian buildings, some of which are EU-funded, and reiterated its opposition to building Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria. "In the past weeks there have been a number of developments in Area C of the West Bank, which risk undermining the viability of a future Palestinian state and driving the parties yet further apart," the EU diplomatic service said in a statement. It referred to Israel's decision on January 25 to declare 154 hectares (380 acres) of land near Jericho in Judea as state land, with...

Immigrant Absorption Minister Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) demanded that the Security Cabinet be convened on the matter, and condemned Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud) for the decision. Sources close to Ya'alon said Thursday that the purchase did not receive required political approval.

Last week, a mob of Jewish youths attacked a group of 11- and 12-year-old schoolgirls, hurling firebombs at their bus near Hevron, in an attack which only failed to cause death or serious injury because attacks against Arabs in the area are so frequent they almost all reinforce their vehicles against rocks and firebombs as...

    Roughly 20 extreme-left activists and Arab protesters arrived at Hevron in Judea this week, but their plans to spark a confrontation with Jewish residents of the “Peace House” and IDF soldiers were upset, as local Arab residents kicked them out of the city. The activists had arrived with cameras and the flags of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), hoping to spark clashes with Jews in Peace House, the Hevron building that in early March finally was recognized by the Supreme Court as having been duly purchased by its Jewish owners, after a six-year-long trial and a ten-year-long struggle.

    Arabs are the culprits behind the destruction Saturday of agricultural fields operated by the Jews of Hevron, say the local Jews. According to a resident of Hevron, Haim Bleicher, some of the Jews discovered the destruction, which included the uprooting of saplings, during their Sabbath family outings. The plot is part of a larger parcel of land that belonged to Jews until 1929, when local Arabs went on an infamous murderous rampage that drove the Jews out. After Hevron was liberated in 1967, some parts of the parcel were handed over to Jews, while others remain in Arab hands. Last...

The stores are located on “Zion Way," the route connecting Kiryat Arba with the area of the Patriarchs Cave in Hevron. The incident is another sign that the PA boycott has fostered increasingly belligerent anti-Israel sentiment. The boycott began several months ago with the confiscation in Samaria of thousands of dollars of cosmetics produced at a kibbutz near the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley.

The plan is reminiscent of the 2005 Disengagement...
