HEBRON, West Bank--- Israeli settlers
yesterday pitched a Sukkah, or
makeshift hut marking a Jewish har-
vest festival, outside a contested house
in the West Bank city of Hebron in a
new claim to ownership.
A few hundred settlers live in several
heavily fortified enclaves in the tense
city of 170,000 Palestinians, who view
each new settler bridgehead with alarm.
Months of wrangling over the house
in downtown Hebron took a decisive
turn on Monday when Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, respond-
ing to the fatal shooting of an Israeli
soldier in Hebron a day earlier, said
settlers should be allowed to move into
Israeli Defence Minister Moshe
Yaalon has since given the go-ahead,
but further approvals are needed before
settlers can move in, said Yaalon aide
Ofer Harel. He declined to elaborate.
Staking their claim yesterday, settlers
set up a Sukkah outside the multi-fam-
ily house. A banner on the Sukkah read,
referring to the house: "We paid for it.
We bought it. It's ours."
Late Monday, Israeli Housing Min-
ister Uri Ariel and two pro-settler leg-
islators spent time in the building in a
show of presence, said David Wilder,
a spokesman for the Hebron settlers.
He said settlers are skeptical of
Settlers briefly occupied the house
last year, claiming they purchased it
from a Palestinian, but the military
evicted them at the time, saying they
lacked the proper authorisation.
The Israeli anti-settlement group
Peace Now said the building has more
than a dozen Palestinian owners who
are contesting settler claims of pur-
Palestinian officials accused
Netanyahu of undermining recently
resumed peace talks with his decision
to promote Jewish settlement in
Hebron, the West Bank's largest Pales-
tinian city. Negotiations on the terms
of a Palestinian state resumed in late
July, after a five-year break.
"Netanyahu wants to foil the peace
talks by continuing to build ... on our
land, and he is looking for a pretext to
hold the Palestinians responsible for
the failure of the talks," Nimr Hamad,
an adviser to Palestinian President
Mahmoud Abbas, said yesterday.
Elsewhere in downtown Hebron,
Israeli soldiers fired stun grenades and
rubber bullets to disperse several dozen
Palestinian stone throwers. Such clashes
are frequent in Hebron, particularly at
times of heightened tension. AP
OKLAHOMA CITY---A South
Carolina couple who vowed last
month to not leave Oklahoma
unless they went home with a
four-year-old Cherokee girl they
have been trying to adopt since
her birth were given custody of
the girl Monday night after the
Oklahoma Supreme Court said
it didn t have jurisdiction over
"She's safely in her parents'
arms," said Jessica Munday, a
spokeswoman for Matt and
Melanie Capobianco of
Charleston, South Carolina.
Cherokee Nation spokeswoman
Amanda Clinton confirmed that
the girl named Veronica was hand-
ed over to the Capobiancos hours
after the Oklahoma Supreme
Court dissolved a temporary court
order leaving the child with her
father and his family. Until the
Monday night transfer, the Chero-
kee Nation had insisted the girl
would remain with the tribe.
The Capobiancos and the girl's
father, Dusten Brown, had fought
over custody of the girl for years.
The dispute has raised questions
about jurisdictions, tribal sover-
eignty and a federal law meant to
help keep Native American tribes
Veronica, whose father is a
member of the Cherokee Nation
and whose mother is not a Native
American, had lived with the
Capobiancos from birth until she
was 27 months old, when Brown
was awarded custody under the
Indian Child Welfare Act. But a
US Supreme Court decision later
went against Brown, and a South
Carolina court finalized the Capo-
biancos' adoption of her earlier
this year. Brown had then turned
to Oklahoma's courts.
It wasn't known if there were
any conditions attached to the
Capobiancos gaining custody,
including whether Brown would
be allowed to visit the girl.
Munday was not sure when the
couple planned to return to South
Carolina with Veronica, but said
she felt they were now free to do
that at any time. She said Veronica
has spent some time with the cou-
ple recently and did remember
"It was smooth. There wasn't
any danger. ... Hopefully everyone
can focus on healing now," said
Munday, a friend of the family.

Israeli soldiers aim their weapons towards Palestinian stone-throwers, not
pictured, during clashes in the West Bank city of Hebron, on Monday. Tensions
run high in Hebron where about 500 Israelis live amid 170,000 Palestinians.
Much of the animosity is over a holy site, sacred to Jews as the Tomb of the
Patriarchs and to Muslims as the Ibrahimi. AP PHOTO
