The Defense Ministry on Friday morning ordered security forces to remove two families from a Hebron building they say were abandoned and purchased legally from its original Palestinian owner.

On Thursday, 20 Jewish families took possession of two abandoned adjacent buildings in the West Bank city of Hebron, located on the road that runs past the Cave of the Patriarchs in the direction of the Avraham Avinu apartment complex.
