Israel to demolish four homes in Hebron-district towns

HEBRON, Wednesday, September 09, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today issued demolition orders against four Palestinian-owned houses in the Hebron-district towns of Bani Na'im and al-Ramadin, according to security sources.

The sources told WAFA that Israeli forces raided Bani Na'im town, east of Hebron, where they took photos and measurements of slain Palestinian Mohammad Naser Tarayra as a prelude to punitevly demolish it.

Israeli military demolished the internal walls of the first floor of Tarayra's house back in  August 2016.

Tarayra, 17, was killed by Israeli military gunfire on June 30, 2016 for stabbing an Israeli settler to death in the colonial settlement of Kiryat Arba.

Meanwhile, Israeli soldiers barged their way into al-Ramadin village, southwest of Hebron, where they handed three residents military orders to demolish their houses.

Israel resorts to punitively demolish the family homes of any Palestinians – as means of deterrence - accused of being involved in attacks against Israelis, a policy that Israel does not use against Israeli settlers who were involved in fatal attacks against Palestinians.

This policy was widely condemned by human rights organizations as “collective punishment” and “a war crime and a crime against humanity”.
