Court Orders Hebron Settlers Out

You’ve gotta go! That’s what an Israeli judge told a group of Jewish settlers in the West Bank Monday. Judge Ram Winograd told the settlers that their claims that they had legally purchased a house in the city of Hebron didn’t add up, according to court documents. His ruling also said that the settlers produced forged documents to try and bolster their claims. Winograd’s decision to rule in favor of the Palestinian plaintiffs and order the Jewish settlers out by May has incensed settlers in the Hebron settler community. About 800 Israeli settlers live in the city of Hebron, home to 190,000 Palestinians.
