High Court urges substitute Gaza evacuee housing

The High Court on Thursday urged the government to provide substitute housing for 21 former Gaza Strip families who abandoned their mobile homes in Kibbutz Karmiya after they were shelled by terrorists. The state, however, insisted it could not help because it would be unfair to other residents of the Gaza Strip periphery. The court was hearing the families' request for an interim injunction obliging the state to pay for their housing until a permanent solution for their safety was found.
