Printed Hebrew edition of Haaretz: Palestinians concede that Jews purchase house in Hebron

Printed Hebrew edition of Haaretz: Palestinians concede that Jews purchase
house in Hebron

From the print Hebrew edition of Haaretz: "The brother still living in the
compound said that the deal wasn't carried out in a kosher way because it
was done via a third party who purchased the property from the Palestinian
family and didn't advise them that he was representing the settlers.
According to Shlomo Levinger, one of the well know personalities in the
Jewish Community of Hebron, a week ago the PA became aware of the
transaction and the Palestinian was arrested. Two days ago the settlers who
were in contact with the Palestinian heard about the arrest and they thus
understood that they had to establish facts in the place. According to him,
they were concerned that the PA would try to hurt the transaction."

The Hebrew report on internet does not include this paragraph.

The English edition also does not (see below).

Thus, the Editors of Haaretz created a situation that only those with access
to the print edition know that the Palestinians admit that Jews purchased
the house.

The occupation of a house in the Palestinian neighborhood in the city of
Hebron by residents of Hebron's Jewish settlement is a provocation that
could destabilize security in the city, sources in the Israel Defense Forces
said on Thursday.

Dozens of residents from the Jewish settlement in Hebron occupied a three
story house in a Palestinian neighborhood in the city overnight Wednesday,
about one hundred meters south of the Cave of the Patriarchs.

The group, which entered the house around 1 A.M. on Thursday, includes
entire families, women and children. Representatives of the group claim that
the house was purchased nearly four months ago after lengthy negotiations
with its previous Palestinian owner. The group states that it holds
documents validating its claim on the building.

The IDF stressed that the house is located in an area which is controlled by
the IDF, and that such an event can lead to the deterioration of the
security situation.

"For us this was a provocation, at this time this is problematic," a
military source said, adding that if, as was claimed, the property was
purchased legally then it is not clear why the group go occupied the house
overnight, in the presence of a large group of people.

Following the groupís move into the house, a large contingent of Israel
Defense Forces soldiers, responsible for the security of the Jewish
settlement in Hebron, arrived on the scene. For now, they decided to
maintain the status quo and allow the group to stay. Currently, entry to the
building is permitted only to members of the initial group, with no
additional persons allowed to enter.
