Illegal Rebuild

Pictured here: The illegal ‘Synagogue Tent’, built on Palestinian land opposite Kiryat Arba settlement, shows signs of further building work and reinforcement. Despite being declared an illegal structure by the Israeli High Court and being removed twice, settlers continue to rebuild the structure. The location of the ‘Synagogue Tent’ is highly strategic, being placed between the illegal Kiryat Arba and Givat Ha’avot settlements, which would facilitate in linking them together.
