Illegal structures razed in West Bank


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli forces razed a structure built in contravention of an announced 10-month freeze on construction in the settlements.

Security and Civil Administration forces on Tuesday evacuated and dismantled a caravan erected five weeks ago in Alon Moreh in protest of the freeze, and also destroyed the foundations of buildings laid in Kochav Yaakov and Kochav Hashahar.

On Monday, forces demolished an improvised Torah study center set up on a hill between the Jewish settlements of Shavei Shomron and Einav dedicated in memory of Rabbi Meir Chai, who was killed below the site by Palestinian terrorists.
