After five years of non-enforcement by the Civil Administration against illegal Arab construction in Gush Etzion, Israel’s Supreme court has had enough.
Justice Noam Solberg ordered the state to update the court within two weeks about the demolition date.
With so many illegal buildings constructed in Area C, it is in Israel’s best interest to enforce the law, assert its lawful rights and carry out demolition without delay. The fact that this has been delayed for five years demonstrates Israel’s systemic failure to implement correct action in a timely manner. Without action taken, the situation will only worsen, notes NGO Regavim.
