Palestinian land owners refuse to leave houses standing

The Palestinian land owners that had 9 illegal houses built on their property in the Ofra settlement have stated to the High Court of Justice that they object the request by Ofra’s residents to seal the houses instead of demolishing them

The houses are to be demolished on March 8, and Ofra’s residents have requested to seal them following the passing of the Regulation Law. The state has clarified that the residents’ assumption is incorrect and that the new law does not apply to them.
