HEBRON, Monday, June 17, 2019 (WAFA) – Israeli forces demolished today four residential shacks made of brick and metal siding in the area of Khillet al-Dabe’ in Masafer Yatta in the south of the occupied West Bank, under the pretext they were built in Area C, which is under full Israeli military control, without a permit, according to a local official.
Rateb al-Jabour, coordinator of the popular committee against the separation wall and settlements, told WAFA that the forces demolished the four shacks and a solar energy panel belonging to Mohammad Dababseh. He noted that 10 people lived in them.
He also said the soldiers assaulted one member of the Dababseh family who apparently attempted to prevent the demolitions from taking place.
Masafer Yatta is located in Area C of the occupied West Bank, which Israel has full control over and prevents development or construction by Palestinians in that area while allowing free hand for Jewish settlers in building settlements or agricultural projects.
