Days Of Palestine – Hebron

Israeli occupation forces on Monday handed notices to demolish 18 Palestinian structures in Umm al-Khair village in Masafer Yatta in the Hebron hills in the south of the West Bank.

Fouad Amour, a local activist, said that Israeli forces stormed the village and delivered demolition notices to eight villagers, identified as members of the Hathalin, al-Masri, al-Tibneh and al-Faqir families purportedly for being built without licenses.

Umm al-Khair is the largest Palestinian community in Masafer Yatta, a collection of almost 19 hamlets which rely heavily on animal husbandry as the main source of livelihood. It is located in Area C of the West Bank, under full Israeli administrative and military control.
