HEBRON, Thursday, December 2, 2021 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today demolished several shelters, animal barns and other structures in two Masafer Yatta villages in the south of the West Bank, according to a local activist.
Rateb Jabour, coordinator of the local anti-wall and anti-settlements committees, said the forces demolished four rooms built of brick and metal panels to serve as shelters, barns for sheep, and stone ovens owned by two local residents, including an elderly woman, in al-Fakhit and al-Markaz communities.
Last night, dozens of Israeli occupation forces raided the home of Palestinian journalist Basel Adra in al-Tuwani community in Masafer Yatta without warning, said Arda in a tweet.
“Dozens of soldiers are invading my home now to confiscate the cameras I use as a journalist with my friends to film the violence carried out by settlers and the home demolitions against my community in Masafer Yatta,” wrote Adra. “They took four cameras, a laptop, and memory cards."
Masafer Yatta includes 16 different communities with a population of more than 2500 people spread over 100,000 dunums of land, all considered Area C of the occupied West Bank under total Israeli military control.
