Israel has 30 days to arrange a living situation for 27 Palestinian families whose homes are set to be demolished, the Israeli Supreme Court ruled.
The village of Zanuta, located in the southern Hebron Hills in the West Bank, is scheduled for demolition by the Israel Defense Forces because it sits on an archaeological site. But the villagers’ legal representative argued before the court on Monday that the state must allow for regular construction in the village because it has existed since before 1967, according to Haaretz.
JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Jewish right-wing activists demonstrated on a main street in Jaffa to protest what organizers see as the "Islamic Movement gaining control over the city."
At least 16 counterdemonstrators were arrested during Wednesday's march as a result of clashes with police.
Arab store owners closed their shops to protest the march and local residents came out to heckle the protesters, who were led by lawmaker Michael Ben-Ari and activists Itamar Ben-Gvir and Baruch Marzel. Hundreds of police and security officials protected the marchers and the route.
