Israel’s High Court ordered out settlers who had taken residence in a West Bank home claimed by Palestinians. A three-justice panel on Thursday served an eviction notice to settlers who took over the three-story house near the Avraham Avinu neighborhood in Hebron last month, claiming it had been purchased from its Palestinian owners. Palestinians accuse the settlers of squatting. The settlers have until Friday morning to leave or face eviction. The High Court said the property should be boarded up while a lower court decides who owns it.
