Palestinians argue with an Israeli solider as dozens of settlers were evacuated by Israeli security forces from two homes in the heart of the West Bank city of Hebron on January 22, 2016, the day after they entered the buildings sparking violent clashes over disputed ownership claims. Israeli troops forcibly removed Jewish settlers from homes they said they had purchased from Palestinians in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron on Friday, prompting some right-wing Israeli lawmakers to threaten to withhold support for the government. Ministers and members of parliament from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party decried Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon's refusal to sign off on the settlers' occupation of the homes in Hebron, a city of high tension between Israelis and Palestinians.
