Israel military demolishes three barns, orders demolition of a house in south of West Bank

HEBRON/BETHLEHEM, Tuesday, August 24, 2021 (WAFA) – The Israeli military government today demolished three animal barns in Khirbet al-Rahwa hamlet, south of al-Dhahiriya, and ordered the demolition of a house in Beit Jala, both in the south of the occupied West Bank, according to local and Palestinian security sources.

Suleiman Abu Allan, an anti-settlements activist, told WAFA that Israeli occupation forces raided Khirbet al-Rahwa and demolished three animal barns, adding that last month the Israeli military handed 13 Palestinian residents of the hamlet demolition notices against their animal sheds.

Israel has been targeting the hamlet in an effort to push its Palestinian residents out of their lands and homes in order to take them over to expand the nearby illegal settlement of Tina.

Meanwhile, in Beit Jala, a Christian town south of Jerusalem, the Israeli military government has informed a local Palestinian resident of its intention to demolish his house under the pretext it was built without a permit, according to a Palestinian security source.
