The Bayit Yehudi faction on Thursday issued a stinging statement criticizing the Defense Ministry its order to evict dozens of Jews from two disputed dwellings in Hebron.

"Amid the current wave of terror, the defense minister (Moshe Ya'alon) is actually operating diligently, without compromise and imperviously to trown out Jews from their homes," read the statement.

The party, led by Education Minister Naftali Bennett, charged that the "irresponsible" maneuver was "stirring things up for no apparent reason."

"The defense minister should deal with Arab terrorism and illegal construction in terrorist communities with the same passion and determination," read the statement posted on Facebook. "Checking acquisition documentation can also be done without throwing out Jews from their homes."
