The state on Wednesday asked the High Court of Justice for extra time to submit
its response regarding two Palestinian market stalls in a Hebron building known
as Beit Ezra.

forced to leave in 1947. It then passed into the hands of the state custodian of
abandoned properties, first under the Jordanians and then under
Two Palestinians rented the structure from the custodian and used
it for four shops until 2001. At that time, the IDF forced the Palestinians to
abandon the market stalls for security reasons.
