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.

A Hebron Jewish family initially owned the building but was 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 Israel.

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.
