The IDF’s Civil Administration early Tuesday demolished a home in the unauthorized Gal outpost located just outside of the Kiryat Arba settlement.

It’s the first such structure to be demolished since Avigdor Liberman became Defense Minister last month replacing Moshe Ya’alon.

Settlers had hoped that Liberman would not continue with Ya’alon policy of new illegal contrition.

Violence broke out between settlers and police forces at the scene that led to two arrests. The police charged that one of the setters had thrown a stone at the tractor driver as he demolished the structure, according to the right wing legal group Honenu. whose attorneys are representing the two men in court.
