HCJ 5290/14, 5295/14, 5300/14 - Qawasmeh et al. v. Military Commander of the West Bank Area Judgment
Judgment | 5290/14 | 11.8.2014
The HCJ's judgment dismissing HaMoked's petitions against the military's intention to punitively demolish two family homes in Hebron – the apartment where lived the family of one of the two suspects in the abduction and murder of three Israeli youths, and the family home of their accomplice – and also to seal the apartment in which lives the family of the other suspect in the case. The court accepts the state's position that there is a "substantial and urgent need" to deter West Bank residents from committing abduction and murder attacks. However, the court instructs the state not to act in the matter until 13:00, August 14, 2014, to allow HaMoked to submit engineering opinions for the military's review.
