Israeli authorities order Palestinians to halt construction of houses, a structure in Masafer Yatta

HEBRON, Monday, August 16, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli occupation authorities issued a halt on construction against two houses and an animal barn in Masafer Yatta, to the south of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, today said Fouad al-Amour, a local activist.

He told WAFA that the two houses, owned by residents of Al-Nahla hamlet, were built of cement and had a tin roof.

At the same time, the Israeli forces photographed several houses and structures in other hamlets in Masafer Yatta, which is usually a prelude to demolishing them.

Israel is launching a demolition campaign against Palestinian-owned structures in Masafer Yatta under the pretext that they are located in military areas, or so-called state lands, or area classified as Area C in order to force Palestinians to leave these areas in favor of settlements.
