Occupation forces confiscate three vehicles in Masafer Yatta

HEBRON, Thursday, July 28, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces confiscated three Palestinian-owned vehicles today in Masafer Yatta region, south of the Hebron in the occupied West Bank, under the pretext of their presence in a closed military area, according to local sources.

Fo’ad Le’mour, a local Palestinian activist, told WAFA that the Israeli occupation army confiscated three Palestinian vehicles in the area under the pretext of their presence in a closed military zone.

Recently, Israel’s top court gave the army the green light to forcibly expel some 1,300 Palestinians living in twelve villages or hamlets making up the Masafer Yatta area, which relies heavily on animal husbandry as the main source of livelihood, marking one of the largest expulsions carried out by the State of Israel in recent decades.

The area has been designated as a closed Israeli military zone for training since 1980s and accordingly referred to as Firing Zone 918.
