Israel to demolish 42 Palestinian homes in Hebron

March 7, 2017 at 4:03 pm

Israeli occupation authorities started to demolish Palestinian homes and other facilities in the Palestinian village of Khan Al-Ahmar in the outskirts of the occupied West Bank city of Hebron yesterday, reported.

A couple of days earlier Israeli occupation authorities distributed demolition orders to 30 Palestinian facilities in the village, including the only school, water wells, solar panels, barracks and barns.

Anti-settlement activist Rateb Al-Jabour said the Israeli occupation forces put the orders on the ground near each facility and took pictures, giving their owners threes to evacuate.

These 30 demolition orders came after 42 previous orders were issued last month.

Villagers appealed to the high court against the demolition orders three weeks ago and asked the judges to stop the demolition at least pending the competition of the procedures of the case, but the court did comply.

Israeli authorities had suggested villagers move to another area, but they refused and stressed that this is their historic land.
