HEBRON, The Israeli occupation forces today demolished a Palestinian-owned structure in al-Rakiz community, near the village of al-Tuwana in Masafer Yatta, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron, according to a local activist.
Fouad Imour, an activist, told WAFA that the occupation forces demolished an 80-square-meter tin and bricks residential structure following a raid by the occupation forces on al-Rakiz.
The soldiers, he said, closed all roads leading to Masafer Yatta and prevented people from reaching the structure slated for demolition.
Israel is trying to empty Masafer Yatta of its Palestinian residents under the pretext of the area designated as a firing zone, while Palestinians believe the aim is to replace them with settlers.
