Meretz slams Ya'alon's decision to allow settlers to populate Hebron building

April 13, 2014 14:20

Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon authorized Jewish settlers in the West Bank city of Hebron to move into a four story building known as Beit Hashalom on Sunday. The High Court of Justice authenticated in March the purchase of the building by a Jew from Brooklyn. 

Meretz faction chairman Ilan Gilon said Ya'alon may be responsible for bloodshed as a result of his decision.

Gilon criticized the defense minister's decision on Beit Hashalom, saying its "more spit in the public's face from the extreme right-wing government, which decides during a crisis in talks with the Palestinians to strengthen settlers in Hebron."
