HEBRON, Tuesday, October 25, 2022 (WAFA) – Israeli occupation forces today dismantled and seized two residential tents in the village of al-Jawwaya to the east of Yatta in southern Hebron after attacking the dwellers, including a 70-year-old man who was moderately injured, according to WAFA correspondent.
Israeli forces stormed the village of al-Jawwaya and dismantled two residential tents belonging to two Palestinian residents. Forces reportedly beat up the dwellers, causing bruises to an elderly man.
Forces further attacked residents with tear gas canisters, causing several people to suffocate.
One of the owners, Adham al-Shawahin told WAFA that the Israeli occupation has recently escalated its attacks against the Palestinian residents in villages and locales in Masafer Yatta area, including the demolition of homes and structures, banning Palestinians from building in the area, and depriving them from electricity and drinking water to get them to leave their homes and lands for the benefit of expanding illegal settlement outposts.
To be noted, the Israeli High Court on May 4 gave the army the green light to demolish 12 communities in Masafer Yatta and to 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.
