Israeli forces dismantle agricultural room near Hebron

HEBRON, Wednesday, March 17, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday morning dismantled and seized an agricultural room, east of Yatta town, south of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to an activist.

Fuad al-'Amour, the Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committee in Masafer Yatta, told WAFA that Israeli forces barged their way into al-Fakhit, east of Yatta, where they dismantled an agricultural room made of tin and seized it.

Al-Fakhit is one of the 19 hamlets making up the Masafer Yatta, which rely heavily on animal husbandry as the main source of livelihood.

Located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli administrative and military control, the area has been subjected to repeated Israeli violations by settlers and soldiers targeting their main source of living - livestock.

It has been designated as a closed Israeli military zone for training since 1980s and accordingly referred to as Firing Zone 918.

Israeli violations against the area include demolition of animal barns, homes and residential structures. Issuance of construction permits by Israel to local Palestinians in the area is non-existent.
