Israeli forces deliver demolition and stop construction notices south of Hebron

HEBRON, Tuesday, June 7, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation authorities today evening notified Palestinian residents in the village of A-Tabban in Masafer Yatta to the south of Hebron, of their intentions to demolish a number of dwellings, and water wells, according to a local activist.

Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, Fouad al-Amour told WAFA that Israeli forces handed local residents in the village of A-Tabban demolition notices against four dwellings; a home for dozens of people, eight water wells, and an animal barn.

Forces also delivered notices ordering to stop the construction work on two water wells and an agricultural shed belonging to two Palestinian residents in the village of Zif to the south of Hebron.

To be noted, the Israeli High Court on May 4 gave the army the green light to demolish 12 communities in Masafer Yatta and displace over 1000 of their residents as part of a plan to seize their lands and homes under the pretext of turning the area into a firing zone for military training.

“Under international law, individual or mass forcible transfers and deportation of protected persons from occupied territories are prohibited, regardless of their motive,” said the EU in a tweet condemning the Israeli decision.
