HEBRON, Sunday, May 08, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces delivered today notices for the demotion of four houses belonging to Palestinians in the Masafer Yatta area to the south of Hebron, according to a local activist.
Coordinator for the Anti-Wall and Settlement Committee Rateb al-Jabour said the Israeli forces handed residents in the Masafer Yatta area notices for the demolition of their four homes. The notices gave the owners four days to appeal the demolition decision.
The Israeli forces have recently escalated their attacks against Palestinians and their properties in the Masafer Yatta area with the aim to take over the land for the benefit of settlement expansion.
In the meantime, a Palestinian sustained tonight sustained cuts and bruises throughout his body after being physically attacked by Israeli forces for attempting to prevent them from demolishing his home in the village of Tiwani in Masafer Yatta.
Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, Fouad al-Amour, said Israeli forces began to demolish a home, made of tin, belonging to a local resident in the village of Tiwani, and when the owner of the house tried to prevent them, they beat him up severally.
