AL-KHALIL, (PIC) – The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Sunday destroyed a house, agricultural structures and water networks belonging to Palestinian citizens in Masafer Yatta, south of al-Khalil.
Local official Rateb al-Jabour said that Israeli bulldozers escorted by soldiers razed a 70-quare-meter house and displaced its inhabitants in al-Fakhid area of Masafer Yatta.
Jabour added that the IOF also bulldozed two agricultural storerooms and their contents in the same area.
The house and agricultural structures belonged to a local resident called Akram Abu Sabha.
The IOF also destroyed the water networks that feed the Bedouin communities along the area from Khilat al-Daba to al-Mafqara in Masafer Yatta.
The Israeli occupation army has escalated its violations in Masafer Yatta in recent months through demolishing homes and structures of impoverished families, preventing them of building, cultivating lands and grazing cattle, and depriving them of water resources in order to force them to leave the region.
