Prime Minister Netanyahu ordered the Defense Ministry not to evacuate settlers from a three-story apartment building in Hebron known as Beit Hamachpela on Tuesday night.

Earlier in the day, fifteen families moved into the structure they claim to have purchased five years ago from its Palestinian owners.

The left-wing organization Peace Now called on the government to immediately order their removal.
