IOF to Demolish Mosque in Occupied Hebron

S.K | DOP -

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) handed Tuesday, March 28, 2023, a notice to demolish a mosque in the Yatta area, south of occupied Hebron.

The coordinator of the National Committee of the Wall and Settlements Resistance, Rateb Jabbour, said that the occupation forces handed the citizens of the “Khashm al-Daraj” community a notice to demolish the Bilal bin Rabah Mosque, and gave them a week for objection.

It’s noteworthy that the area of the mosque is about 150 square meters, and it serves a number of Palestinian population centers in Badia and Masafer Yatta in occupied Hebron.

Moayad Shaaban, the Director of the Settlements and Wall Resistance Commission said that demolition orders form one of the colonial methods used by Israel to seize Palestinians’ properties and prevent them from expansion.

He added that the rapid increase of demolition orders, with the emergence of the new Israeli government, aims at displacing Palestinians and evacuating the lands in favor of the Israeli settlements expansion.
