Israeli forces demolish barn, uproot trees near Hebron


HEBRON, Sunday, March 10, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces on Sunday demolished a poultry barn and uprooted dozes of fruitful trees in al-Arroub refugee camp, to the north of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron, according to local sources.

Mohammad Awad, a local activist, told WAFA that staff from the so-called Israeli Civil Administration accompanied by bulldozers proceeded to demolish the barn and to uproot dozens of trees surrounding it.

The demolished barn belongs to local Palestinian citizen Khalid al-Samahin and is 600-meter-square of size.

The Israeli authorities citied construction without permission as the reason for the demolition, a pretext which Israel has used over the years to restrict Palestinian construction in Area C of the occupied West Bank, which makes up about 60% of the total area of the region.
