Skip to comments.Ofra evictions: 8 homes evacuated, 8 officers injured (Title change)
Posted on 02/28/2017 2:53:25 AM PST by Eleutheria5
The evacuation of nine houses in the Givat Tzvi neighborhood of Ofra commenced just after 9:00 a.m. Tuesday morning, after Border Police officers sealed off access to the homes slated for demolition.
Hundreds of demonstrators faced off against security forces deployed to the town, with some protesters barricading themselves inside houses facing demolition.
Prior to the evacuation, more than 100 Border Police officers deployed around the nine homes slated for demolition in Ofra.
Officers blocked off access to the Givat Tzvi neighborhood, isolating the area ahead of the evacuation. In addition, security forces surrounded each of the nine homes individually, cutting off movement within the neighborhood.
Confrontations between security forces and demonstrators were reported early Tuesday morning ahead of the evacuation.
On Monday, the Supreme Court announced that they rejected the residents petition asking not to demolish the nine homes.
The judges did not accept the request of the residents to seal the nine houses rather than demolish them and also clarified that the recently approved Regulation Law does not apply to them.
Last Wednesday the state responded to the Ofra residents request that the nine houses not be destroyed but rather sealed.
In its response, the state argued that the Regulation Law does not apply to these nine homes. The state noted that it did not believe there is reason not to destroy the homes and thus its position is that the request should be rejected. MK Smotrich, who drafted the law, believes the opposite is true.

Very sad, totally unjustified, and utterly unnecessary — and even harmful — politically,
I just saw about five policemen forcibly removing a struggling ten-year-old boy from his home. Infuriating! The kid has elephant balls. We’ll be hearing from him in a few years.
Leftists destroying homes Jihad cant.
So who is being evicted, Jews or Palis?
Soon to be happening on parts of our own southern Border.
Jews never evict Palestinians, even when they build houses on roads and sidewalks.
Looks like Israel has the same problem that America has with its Supreme Court — leftist Judges doing things that leftist legislators can’t accomplish. The Israeli judicial swamp needs to be drained just as America’s needs to be drained.
Thanks. I can not get my mind to grasp the concept of Jews acting with such evil against other Jews.
NGOs pop out of the woodwork to stop any demolition of Pali structures before it’s even contemplated.
Evil protects evil if not it’s own. It is a shame to good that they do not protect their own in the face of evil but compromise what is good.
Evil is accomplished both ways.
Oh...I thought Ofrah Winfrey was going broke or something when I read the title.
These were legally built homes, being destroyed by liberals who cower every time a so-called “palestinian” farts.
I thought with Trump in the White House, Netanyahu would find his courage.
Israel needs to stop discussing the west bank. They need to exercise full sovereignty over it, settling it, developing it, and governing it.
This wasn’t Bibi’s call. Judicial decision. You can curse the leftist judge, but rule of law is rule of law.
You are going to have to translate for me. Thanks
Here is the translation:
With these hands I signed the deportation / Im always determined against the settlers / Im here for you, Adalah and Yesh Din (two anti-Zionist NGOs) / Submit petitions, Im waiting for you.
Ay, I havent Demolished Enough Yet / The Jews are building too much / Ay, I havent Demolished Enough Yet / Im working on it, count on me.
I havent put enough soldiers in jail / Theres much to improve in protecting terrorists / So come on, BTselem and Breaking the Silence / Submit more claims and get another ruling
Ay, I havent Demolished Enough Yet / The warriors are shooting too much / Ay, I havent Demolished Enough Yet / Im working on it, count on me.
There are still neighborhoods in Israel that have no infiltrators / In the Negev there are still hilltops without tents / There still so many things I want to accomplish / Until I totally destroy this country.
Ay, I havent Demolished Enough Yet / The Jews here are living to well / Ay, I havent Demolished Enough Yet / Im working on it, count on me.
Ah yes, the oath of the Israeli judiciary.
Did the kid account for all eight officers?
