Israeli forces demolish three structures in Hebron district


HEBRON, Wednesday, May 27, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday demolished three structures in the southern West Bank district of Hebron.

WAFA correspondent said that Israeli forces escorted a bulldozer into Farsh al-Hawa area, west of Hebron city, where the heavy machinery tore down three agricultural structures, purportedly for being built without permits.

Soldiers razed a plot of land planted with summer crops in the same area.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces ordered the demolition of three tents in Masafer Yatta in the southern Hebron hills.

Local activist Fuad al-‘Amur said that forces handed military notices to demolish a residential tent in al-Fakhit community, a tin-sheet structure in al-Markez community besides to a makeshift clinic designed to fight the outbreak of coronavirus at the entrance of Maghayir al-Abeed community.

Masafer Yatta is a collection of almost 19 hamlets which rely heavily on animal husbandry as the main source of livelihood.

Located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli administrative and military control, the area has been subjected to repeated Israeli violations by settlers and soldiers targeting their main source of living - livestock.

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

Israeli violations against the area include demolition of animal barns, homes and residential structures. Issuance of construction permits by Israel to local Palestinians in the area is non-existent.
