The Israeli occupation forces today, Tuesday, demolished three homes in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the south of the occupied West Bank.

The Coordinator of the Protection and Resilience Committees, Fuad Al-Amor, stated that the Israeli occupation forces demolished three homes in the Khallet al-Daba 'area, east of Yatta, under the pretext that they were not licensed.

Al-Amor indicated that the Israeli occupation forces target the area of ​​Khallet al-Daba, by demolishing the homes of citizens and seizing their lands, and pursuing them, with the aim of forcing them to leave it in favor of settlements.

The village of Khallet al-Daba 'is located to the east of the town of Yatta, and it is considered one of the population centers in Masafer Yatta. Its population is about 100 people, who live on agriculture, raising livestock, and making dairy products.

It is noteworthy that the Israeli occupation forces are launching organized military campaigns targeting the demolition of tents and dwellings of farmers and shepherds in villages and the destruction of Masafir Yatta, Hebron district, in a move aimed at deporting them from their lands and properties for settlement purposes.

Since the beginning of the year, the Israeli occupation forces have escalated the demolition operations that targeted all areas in the West Bank. 

Most of them were concentrated in the northern Jordan Valley, including Humsa al-Fawqa, in addition to Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron.
