Court rejects appeal against Beit Yehonatan sealing

The Jerusalem District Court rejected Tuesday the latest appeal against the slated sealing of Beit Yehonatan, a Jewish seven-story building constructed without a permit in the mostly Arab southeast Silwan neighborhood, Israel Radio reported.
Judge Nava Ben-Or ruled against the appeal by residents to delay the sealing order, stipulating that it should be carried out immediately.
The building is named for Jonathan Pollard and was built in 2004 with funds from the Ateret Cohanim organization.
