The Magistrates Court ordered Jewish residents of a house in Hebron to vacate the premises and pay a Palestinian Authority family NIS 579,600, Haaretz reported Monday. Jewish families have been living on the property since 2005 but a Palestinian plaintiff argued the deeds to the property were forged. The latest order follows a previous Supreme Court ruling.
