Israeli forces seize caravan south of Hebron

HEBRON, Wednesday, October 6, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli forces today seized a caravan from the town of Yatta, south of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, local sources said.

Coordinator of the Anti-Wall and Settlement Popular Committees, Rateb Jabour, told WAFA that Israeli forces and officers of the so-called Israeli Civil Administration raided an area near the illegal colonial settlement of Susia, east of the town, and seized an caravan used as an agricultural room for farmers from the Yatim family. owned by the family of al-Yateem.

He pointed that Israel has been stepping up its aggressive measures against Palestinians in the area in order to force them out of their lands in favor of colonial settlements expansion.

The “Civil Administration” is the name Israel gives to the body administering its military occupation of the West Bank.

Soldiers in the oxymoronically named Civil Administration determine where Palestinians may live, where and when they may travel (including to other parts of the occupied territories like Gaza and East Jerusalem), whether they can build or expand homes on their own land, whether they own that land at all, whether an Israeli settler can takeover that land among others.
