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.

Since 1997, Hebron has been divided with 80% under PA jurisdiction and 20% under Israeli control. Of that 20%, Israeli civilians have access to Jewish neighborhoods. The court ruling is the latest in a series of fights over who owns property in the historic city.
