The High Court of Justice on Tuesday on Tuesday denied a petition from Peace Now to demolish the home of Eliraz Peretz, a slain IDF major who was killed in a 2010 firefight with Palestinian terrorists near the Gaza border.

Peretz's home was one of 12 in the Hayovel outpost the Peace Now had contested as illegal.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had earlier said he would prevent the demolition. “We have common sense. I won’t allow the destruction of the homes of these heroes that sacrificed their lives for the security of Israel,” he said.
