2,026 Homes in Danger of Demolition in Judea and Samaria

Nationalist organizations are sounding the alarm with a booklet containing aerial photographs of around 20 Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, which presents 2,026 homes in danger of demolition.


The booklet shows the 2,026 homes which are on land allegedly privately owned by Arabs, with the buildings to be destroyed if the political echelon does not act to block petitions that will be submitted against them in the coming years.


Of the 2,026, 1,232 of the structures are established homes, and another are mobile homes, altogether representing the homes of around 1,500 families. Most of those families don’t know that their homes are on land said to be private.


Arutz Sheva has learned that the booklet, which was prepared by the NGO Regavim, has been presented to Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein (Likud), as well as other ministers and MKs.


It has been learned that radical leftist groups possess the aerial photographs as well, and intend to use them in legal battles to destroy the homes.


The scope of the potential destruction is great as revealed by the photographs, with a large portion of the homes having been built many years ago under the full agreement of the state and representing great investments to increase the Jewish presence in order to, among other things, increase regional security.
