HEBRON, Israeli occupation forces today issued demolition and stop-work orders against several Palestinian structures in Masafer Yatta in the south of the West Bank, according to a local activist.
Coordinator of the Protection and Steadfastness Committees in Masafer Yatta, Fouad al-Amour, told WAFA that the occupation forces handed five demolition notices in Khirbet al-Twani and Khirbet al-Rakiz, against residential structures and water wells under the pretext that they were built without a permit.
He said that Israeli forces took pictures of several structures in the hamlets, which raised concern among residents that they might be next in the demolition and displacement.
During the last week, the occupation forces delivered several demolition notices and tore down a number of structures in Masafer Yatta as a means to forcefully displace the local residents and make room for the expansion of the illegal Israeli colonial settlements.
