After two Jews, Betar resident David Cohen and Kiryat Arba resident Yehezkel Moalem, were murdered on the road leading from Kiryat Arba to Hebron’s Old City in July 2001, the Jabaris were forbidden to enter and work their land, harvest olives, plow, plant or let their animals graze there. The illegal structure put up on their land was built in 2003. The entry and cultivation ban was rescinded in 2007, only after the attorney Labib Habib petitioned against it.

Jabari resumed working his land, but saplings that he had planted were uprooted, and when he and other members of the family went out to plow or do other work, they would be threatened and attacked by armed Israelis.
