Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar told Israel Radio Wednesday morning that as far as he knew, the discussion over the disputed Hebron home Beit Hamachpela was not over, nor had decisions been made.

Sa'ar said that if it is found that the home was purchased legally, then the government should let the residents stay there since the government's position is that Jews should live in Hebron.

Legal officials said Wednesday morning that residents of the home must evacuate by April 25th, following a late-night meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyhau, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and a small group of ministers. Netanyahu and Barak were set to continue discussing the issue on Wednesday.
