Dozens of settlers enter home in old city of Hebron

Several dozen settlers entered a home adjacent to the Cave of the Patriarchs in the old city of Hebron early Thursday morning, claiming to have documents proving they purchased the empty building.
Soon after they entered the building, IDF and police forces arrived and remained on the scene while an investigation was opened into the ownership of the home. The IDF declared the area a closed military zone while the investigation was being conducted.
The settlers did not inform anyone of their intentions to enter the home.
