The Israeli High Court delayed deliberations in a case filed by Israel’s Peace Now Movement on behalf of a Palestinian family demanding Israel to remove Israeli settlers squatting in a home they occupied in the heart of Hebron City, in the southern part of the West Bank.The home is located in what is now known as Beit Ezra illegal outpost in Hebron.
The Israeli Court also decided to pay Peace Now and the family NIS 5000 each for expenses they endured due to the fact that deliberations on the case have been repeatedly delayed upon request of the Israeli government, the Arabs48 news website reported.

In related news, Israeli soldiers kidnapped on Wednesday a Palestinian young man at the entrance of Beit Ummar town, near Hebron.

Mohammad Awad, member of the Popular Committee Against the Wall, reported that soldiers ambushed Mo’taz Ahmad Khalil, 23, and kidnapped him directly after he parked his car and stepped out of it.
