Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) demolished Monday morning, July 31, 2023, a Palestinian house in Masafer Yatta, south of occupied Hebron.
The Palestinian citizen, Ahmed Muhammad Abu Qubeita, stated that Israeli occupation forces demolished his house in the Wadi al-Amayer area, adjacent to the “Susiya” settlement established on Palestinian citizens’ lands, and confiscated its contents.
Abu Qubeita added that his residence is a “caravan”, which is a mobile house, consisting of two floors with an area of 80 square meters, as the occupation forces did not notify him before today that they would remove it.
Israeli occupation tries in various ways to forcibly displace Palestinians from their own lands and demolish their homes in favor of settlement expansion, using pretexts most notably building without a permit.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in the occupied Palestinian territory reported that Israel demolished, confiscated, or forced Palestinians to demolish 54 structures in East Jerusalem and Area C of the West Bank in July, displacing 66 people and affecting the livelihoods of nearly 800 others.
