Hebron’s Jewish community sealed four rooms on Tuesday in the Beit Ezra building, which it had evacuated this week, in accordance with a High Court of Justice dictate on the matter.

Two families had used the rooms, which once served as Palestinian shops.

The court closed the case after it had accepted the state’s decision that the families must leave.

The state also told the court that it would weigh whether the Jewish community could make use of the four rooms prior to the April 24 evacuation date, but it has yet to make a decision on the matter.

“We are fulfilling our side of the agreement and we expect the other side to fulfill theirs,” said Hebron community spokesman David Wilder.
