IOF seals off Palestinian house in Hebron

Days of Palestine -

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) on Thursday welded shut the door of a Palestinian home in the Old City of Hebron.

Local sources said that the Israeli Civil Administration, accompanied by IOF soldiers, stormed al-Shuhadaa Street and welded shut the main entrance to Sami Zahdeh's house.

They reported that the house was set on fire about two weeks ago and the IOF prevented the fire crews from entering the area.

The Palestinian residents were forced to make a hole in the wall of one of the neighboring houses to extinguish the fire.

The Civil Administration later ordered the family to enter the house from that hole, and told them not to reopen the closed door.
