In a majority opinion issued today, Israel's High Court of Justice cancelled an Israeli military order for a punitive home demolition in the West Bank. The military had ordered the demolition of the third floor apartment of the Abu Bakr home in Yaabed, near Jenin.

The father of the family, Nizmi Abu Bakr, is accused of dropping a concrete block from the roof of the house on soldiers during an operation in the town, killing the soldier Amit Ben Yigal. HaMoked filed the petition on behalf of the mother of the family and her eight children, as well as two other family members who live in the building.
