Occupation forces tear down residential tent near Hebron

HEBRON, Sunday, October 18, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces tore down today a residential tent housing a Palestinian family in Masafer Yatta, a Bedouin locality to the south of Hebron in the occupied West Bank, according to a local source.

Foad Omour, a local activist who monitors Israeli violations, told WAFA that Israeli occupation forces raided the area and tore down a tent belonging to a local Palestinian man identified as Morad Hamamdeh.

He said the man had set up the tent after the occupation forces demolished his house by the end of last September, under the pretext of lacking an Israeli construction permit.

The area where the home is slated for demolition is classified as Area C, the more than 60 percent of the occupied West Bank where Israel retains military and civilian control.

Palestinians living in this area are frequently exposed to the danger of home demolitions by the occupation authorities under the pretext of lacking an Israeli permit.
