Israeli security forces evicted dozens of Jewish settlers from two homes in the heart of the West Bank city of Hebron Friday, a day after they had moved in.The families had only moved in Thursday after buying the homes from Palestinian families, the settlers said.In Hebron, where 500 Jewish settlers live protected by Israeli forces in a city of around 200,000 Palestinians, the expansion of the Jewish enclave is a fiercely contested matter.Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon would have to approve the settlers' move, which would in effect expand the boundaries of the Jewish area in Hebron.Jewish settlements in the West Bank, which Israel seized in 1967, have been declared illegal by the international community.
