Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced in an official statement Wednesday that "he is working to find a legal solution in order to prevent damage to slain Maj. Eliraz Pertez's family," referring to demolition order on the family's home which is built on Palestinian land.

Peretz was killed last year during military operations in the Gaza Strip. The state was expected to present an argument to the High Court on Thursday with a solution that would save the house from destruction.
