Hebron Mayor Khaled Osaily said he knows with certainty that the sale of a home near the Cave of the Patriarchs to several Jewish families was fraudulent, speaking with Army Radio Tuesday. The IDF has ordered the Jewish families to evacuate the home by 3 p.m. Tuesday if they cannot prove they bought the home legally.

"Everything is forged [and] it is not the first time," Osaily said, claiming there is a criminal case open against one of the parties involved in the sale from previous, similar incidents.

"The person who sold [the house] to them is not the owner of the house. There was forgery and I am certain about what I am saying," the Hebron mayor added.
