The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) released a statement on Sunday regarding its petition to stop demolitions of Palestinian residences in the village of Khirbat Zanuta in Area C of the West Bank.

The petition is due to be heard on July 30, 2012 before the High Court of Justice.

The petition was initially filed by ACRI in 2007 on behalf of the village residents, and the court issued a temporary restraining order against demolitions by the state in response.

Last year, a non-governmental organization called Regavim filed an amicus-curia request in the case to try to move the case forward and execute the demolitions. Shortly thereafter, the state responded to ACRI's petition, leading to next week's hearing on the issue.
