State may ask Hebron's Beit Ezra families to leave

Two Jewish families living in four rooms in Hebron’s Beit Ezra building might be forced to leave, according to documents the state is expected to turn into the High Court of Justice on Monday.
The state, however, is also expected to clarify that Hebron’s Jewish community can use the property for public purposes, according to an Israeli official and Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein.
The Ministerial Committee on Settlement Affairs was initially scheduled to discuss the matter on Sunday, in advance of the state’s submission to the court. However, the meeting was canceled.
In the past, committee members have endorsed an earlier decision by a military appeals court to allow the families to rent the rooms from the Custodian of Abandoned Properties.
