Approximately 200 settlers and Israeli soldiers broke into the home of the Abu Rajab family in Hebron. “The Civil Administration gave us a military decision about four days ago, due to the problems in the area; they want to be near our house. Today we are surprised by the storming of the house by more than 50 settlers, led by the army and the civil administration,” said Hazem Abu Rajab, the owner of the house. Abu Rajab family denied that it sold the house to the settlers.
Hebrew sources said that the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the Minister of the occupation army, Avigdor Lieberman not to evacuate the settlers from the house.
