With no major violent incidents, security forces carry out court-ordered demolition of carpentry shop, built on privately-owned Palestinian land, in Elazar settlement neighborhood; residents laid barbed wire, set tires aflame and barricaded themselves in shop; further demolitions ordered.
Security forces completed the first demolition in the Netiv Ha’avot neighborhood in the Elazar settlement Wednesday of a carpentry shop, after the High Court of Justice (HCJ) ruled that it was built illegally on privately-owned Palestinian land.
The order was part of a larger injunction calling for the demolition of a total of 17 illegal structures from the Gush Etzion settlement by March next year.
