The Jerusalem Post reports: Amid murmurings of a coalition crisis surrounding the evacuation of Jewish families and activists from two buildings purchased in Hebron, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at Sunday’s cabinet meeting that the people would be allowed back in once the purchases are confirmed.

“The government supports settlements, especially during these days when they are under attack and standing steadfast and with courage against terrorist attacks,” he said.

At the same time, he added, “we are a nation of laws and must respect the law.”

Netanyahu said that the moment the purchases are confirmed, families will be allowed back into the homes, “as we have done in similar cases in the past.”
