Israeli Court Orders Army To Find Living Solution For Palestinian Villagers

07/31/2012

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.
