HEBRON, Thursday, September 12, 2019 (WAFA_ Israeli army welded shut the main entrance to a house belonging to a Palestinian resident in Shuhada Street in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to witnesses.
Wiitnesses said Israeli forces, accompanied by staff from the Israeli civil administration, welded shut the main entrance to Sami Zahdeh’s house, which is located in Shuhada Street.
Local sources informed WAFA correspondent that the house was set on fire about two weeks ago, and the occupation forces prevented the fire crews from entering Shuhada Street, forcing them to make a hole in the wall of one of the neighboring houses to extinguish the fire.
The civil administration repotedly ordered the family to enter the house from that hole, and told them not to reopen the door they welded shut.
Shuhada Street is located in H2 area of Hebron, which is under Israeli military occupation. Palestinians living there are regularly mistreated and harassed by the Israeli army and the handful of zealous Jewish settlers who live there.
